Irish Report Welcomed

Edmund Rice International welcomes the recent publication of the Report of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse in Industrial Schools in Ireland.

In welcoming the report we strongly endorse it as a significant step towards remedying the injustices of the past and ensuring that such abuse is never repeated.

Children continue to be at risk and to be abused throughout the world. It is imperative that we commit ourselves unequivocally to ensuring a safer, better and fairer world for children through the promotion and protection of the rights of the child.

In this regard Edmund Rice International commends the current advocacy campaign in Ireland, led by the Children’s Rights Alliance, for a constitutional amendment to incorporate the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child within Irish domestic law.

Edmund Rice International remains committed to working at the international level to promote and protect the rights of children and the bringing about of God’s dream for the world and for humanity.
