PDF (National Action Plan Against Racism)

Ireland is a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural nation. Everyone has a right to live free of racial discrimination. And yet, there is clear evidence that racism exists in Ireland and that some of us who live here feel its impact on our day-to-day lives in a variety of ways. This National Action Plan Against Racism proposes actions to help Ireland to become a place where the impacts of racism are acknowledged and actively addressed. The plan was developed by an independent committee appointed by the Government in 2020. It follows the committee’s Interim Report, published in 2021, which sets out the overall approach, the guiding principles and understandings of racism the committee employed in developing the plan. The committee consulted widely and received a large number of submissions. Information on the committee and the process used to develop the plan is provided at Annex 2.

A high-level summary of the plan has been translated into a number of languages. These summary documents may be used by organisations as needed, to direct people affected by racism or working in the area of anti-racism towards the National Action Plan Against Racism. A summary in additional languages can be found here.
