The report, ”Does It Only Happen to Me? Living in the shadows of Socio-Economic Discrimination’‘ was launched on Wednesday 18th September by Senator Lynn Ruane at an event prepared by All Together in Dignity Ireland.
The 19 recommendations from the report were discussed by academics, elected representatives, civil society organisations and people with direct experience of discrimination gathered in the Auditorium of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC).
The report calls on the Government and the Oireachtas to speed up the passage of the Private Members Bill introducing the recognition of a tenth ground of discrimination in the Irish Equal Status Act.
