Written Evidence to the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee inquiry into ‘The effectiveness of the institutions of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement’ – Political vetoes or objective safeguards?
CAJ has submitted written evidence to the NI Affair Committee’s inquiry into ‘The effectiveness of the institutions of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement’. The inquiry is considering the extent to which the NI Executive and Assembly have delivered cross-community, effective, and stable government in Northern Ireland; together with seeking proposals and commentary on mechanisms for reform.
Our submission focuses on the need to go back to basics and introduce political safeguards based on objective legal rights standards (as was originally intended by the Good Friday Agreement), rather than allowing the use of subjective political vetoes to continue.
