Sectarianism The Key Facts – Equality Coalition Framework Report

Event date(s): 11 December 2019

Robbie McVeigh speaking | CRC NI

Sectarianism The Key Facts is a framework report on tackling institutional sectarianism in Northern Ireland.

Commissioned by the Equality Coalition, independent researcher Dr Robbie McVeigh has authored a piece of research on contemporary sectarianism in Northern Ireland.

The 40-page report looks at institutional sectarianism in Northern Ireland – especially where there is evidence of sectarianism in decision-making – and puts forwards recommendations for state action on sectarianism. 

Sectarianism The Key Facts will be launched by the Equality Coalition during this year’s Northern Ireland Human Rights Festival at an event held in UNISON Belfast, 10.30am 11 December 2019.

The report will be presented in person by Dr Robbie McVeigh, after an introduction from Equality Coalition Co-Conveners Patricia McKeown (UNISON) and Daniel Holder (CAJ).

There will then be a panel discussion with:

  • Seán Brady (PPR)
  • Elaine Crory (Belfast Feminist Network & WRDA)
  • Gráinne Ní Ghilín (An Dream Dearg)
  • Kat Healy (Social Justice Trust)
  • Rachel Powell (Women’s Sector Lobbyist)
