Public Consultation for the Development of Ireland's Third National Action Plan

Written Consultations

On the 15th November, the Tánaiste and Minister of Foreign Affairs launched a call for public submissions for the development of Ireland's Third National Action Plan on the Women, Peace and Security Agenda. A summary of the views expressed in 49 submissions has been compiled and are presented in this document and individual submissions can be read below.

Consultation Workshops

In January 2019 two consultation workshops were held on the development of Ireland's Third National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security. The workshops were hosted by the Working Group on the development of the National Action Plan, with support from the Conflict Resolution Unit, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The first workshop, held in the Millennium Hall, Cork had a focus on the participation of migrants/refugees/asylum seekers living in Ireland from conflict affected areas.

A preparatory conference was held in Cork on December 6th for women coming from conflict/post conflict affected areas living in Ireland.

The Dublin Workshop focussed more heavily on the international dimension of the plan, although the domestic agenda was also represented. Representatives from Bulgaria, Liberia, Lithuania, and Greece participated in the events in order to promote cross-learning for the development of their own respective National Action Plans.  Other participants included representatives from NGOs, academia, independents, Civil Society Organisations from Northern Ireland dimension, and relevant statutory bodies and government departments.

Over 200 people had the opportunity to express their views over the course of two workshops. Read our Workshop Report.
