The Irish Human Rights Commission (IHRC) is Ireland’s National Human Rights Institution, set up by the Irish Government under the Human Rights Commission Acts 2000 and 2001 and functioning in accordance with the United Nations Paris Principles. The IHRC has a statutory remit to endeavour to ensure that the human rights of all persons in the State are fully realised and protected in the law and practice of the State. One of the functions of the IHRC is to examine legislative proposals and to report its views on the implications of such proposals for human rights, having regard to the Constitution and international human rights treaties to which Ireland is a party. The IHRC is mandated to make recommendations to the Government as it deems appropriate in relation to the measures which the IHRC considers should be taken to strengthen, protect and promote human rights in the State.
