Emily Logan to launch human rights book at UCD School of Law
Emily Logan, chief commissioner of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) will today launch a new book on human rights law at an event hosted by the University College Dublin (UCD) School of Law.
International Human Rights: Perspectives from Ireland, edited by Suzanne Egan, lecturer in international and European human rights law since 1992, examines Ireland’s engagement with, and influence of, the international human rights regime.
It explores the philosophical development and challenges to and of human rights, as well as the operation of the international human rights framework.
It addressed both the implementation of human rights in Ireland and the role of Ireland in implementing human rights abroad, through foreign policy and Irish NGOs.
It includes a chapter on socio-economic rights and how these have been implemented in Ireland over recent years.
The book has been published by Bloomsbury, who are offering a 40 per cent discount to registered students with discount code “IHR40%” when purchased from their online store.
The launch event takes place in the Gardiner Atrium, UCD School of Law today at 6.30pm. It is possible to RSVP by emailing email@example.com.
