Workshop a hit with students

24 Jul 2023

The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission (NIHRC) delivered a workshop with twenty US students from the University of Georgia as part of the GLOBIS (Centre for the Study of Global Issues) programme on Tuesday 18th July at the Accidental Theatre venue in Shaftesbury Square in Belfast.

K. Chad Clay, Director of the Centre for the Study of Global Issues and Associate Professor of International Affairs at the University of Georgia, said:

“We would like to thank the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission for their interactive and engaging presentations. Rhyannon, Michael and Conor from the NIHRC made a great impression on the students and answered all their questions. The students got a lot from this engagement, and we hope to link in with the NIHRC next year again”.

Rhyannon Blythe, Director of Legal at the NIHRC added:

It was great to meet the students, share our journey and raise awareness of what we do to make sure the government and public authorities protect, respect and fulfil the human rights of everyone in Northern Ireland. I was delighted there were so many questions at the end of the presentation as it showed how engaged and passionate the students are about human rights”.

The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission deliver free human rights workshops for schools and community groups. If you would like a workshop organised, please email
