60 years, 30 perspectives :
Ireland and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights /
edited and with a foreword by Donncha O'Connell.
"Sixty Years, Thirty Perspectives offers a unique insight into how the values set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) are protected and respected in Ireland, sixty years after its adoption. Thirty contributors, including Niall Crowley, Theo Dorgan, Dr Diarmuid Martin, Emily O'Reilly and Sean Og O hAilpin, reflect on the relevance to Ireland in 2009 of specific articles of the UDHR. The book also includes a photo-essay from one of Ireland's best-known photographers, Derek Speirs." "Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally recognised human rights for all. Our supporters are outraged by human rights abuses but hope for a better world - so we work to improve human rights through campaigning and international solidarity. We have more than 2.2 million members and subscribers in more than 150 countries and regions and we coordinate this support to act for justice on a wide range of issues." "Nationally, Amnesty International Ireland has 22,000 supporters. We research, campaign and lobby to oppose attacks on human rights and to hold the Irish government accountable for its obligations under international law."--Jacket.
