Inquiry into Building a United Community
The Committee for the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister is undertaking an Inquiry into Building a United Community.
The purpose of the inquiry is to inform the Executive’s approach in the actions it takes to tackle sectarianism, racism and other forms of intolerance; and to make recommendations in order to support and enhance policy in uniting communities and community integration, including how communities are involved in decision making. The Inquiry will also seek to make recommendations based on the evidence gathered.
In January the Committee hosted a roundtable stakeholder event with 60 attendees to gather evidence in relation to the Inquiry. A report from the event is available here.
In February the Committee hosted an informal meeting with young people from the Bytes Project who presented their views on the Committee’s Inquiry. A report from the event is available here.
