The 2021 Northern Ireland Human Rights Festival (NIHRF) is now live! This year’s festival will run between 3 and 10 December 2021. Here is a link to the full programme of events Human Rights Festival (

This year’s festival covers a range of rights issues that are yet to be properly protected or implemented. From the undelivered Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland, the failure to properly protect recently won abortion rights, continued failure to uphold the rights of people with disabilities, deal with our housing crisis or protect the rights of individuals and communities locally and across the globe, the festival will cover a whistle-stop tour of injustices, challenges and broken promises.
