Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC)

The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) is Ireland’s national human rights and equality institution.

IHREC is an independent public body that accounts to the Oireachtas, with a mandate established under the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission Act 2014 (IHREC Act 2014). The IHREC Act includes and further enhances the functions of the former Irish Human Rights Commission and the former Equality Authority.

It is the specialised equality body in Ireland for the promotion of equal treatment as required under the EU Race Directive and the amended Gender Equal Treatment Directive.
