Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights
2017 - 2022 Mandate
The Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights was set up following the New Decade, New Approach Agreement in early 2020. The Committee was tasked with considering the creation of a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland. That included looking at the implications of a Bill of Rights here and what rights it might include. The Committee discussed and received briefings from a wide range of stakeholders and experts in human rights, but a crucial part of its evidence-gathering was listening to those who are directly affected – you.
On 14 February 2022 the Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights published its report and the work of the Committee concluded.
