We are pleased to announce that IPRT is one of 30 recipients of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission’s (IHREC) Human Rights and Equality Grant 2023-2024.
IPRT's project, 'Know Your Rights: Access to Justice and Rights for People in Prison', involves organising a conference to build understanding of prisoners’ rights among those working to support prisoners, in particular migrant and ethnic minority prisoners and build capacity to better advocate for the vindication of these rights as well as to more widely disseminate the Prisoners’ Know Your Rights booklet to increase further awareness and understanding.
We are grateful to the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission for supporting this piece of work under the Human Rights and Equality Grants Scheme 2023-2024.
A list of all Human Rights and Equality Grant 2023-24 awardees is available on the IHREC website here.
In 2022, IPRT was been awarded funding from IHREC under the Human Rights and Equality Grants Scheme 2022-2023 under Theme A ‘Advancing Greater Economic Equality’, to conduct a small-scale analysis of the attitudes of employers and the experiences of people with convictions in accessing decent work. The 'Working with Conviction' project is still ongoing and we look forward to sharing the results once completed.
