Publications - Bill of Rights

Under the terms of the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement 1998, the Commission was asked to consult and advise on a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland. It delivered advice to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland on 10 December 2008. The form of a possible Bill of Rights has been debated vigorously, although very little progress has been made towards the adoption of the instrument. The ongoing delay is a matter of regret for the Commission, which continues to consider that the advice it delivered constitutes a strong basis on which to proceed. It continues to support efforts for the adoption of a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland.
