Ulster Human Rights Watch (UHRW)

As a major human rights organisation in Northern Ireland, UHRW promotes human rights in Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom as well as in other European countries signatory to the European Convention on Human Rights, including the Republic of Ireland.

The Ulster Human Rights Watch supports families across Northern Ireland that have been bereaved or have had members physically and mentally injured as a result of terrorism.

Ulster Human Rights Watch


The Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill, currently passing through parliament, represents a threat to the rights of victims of terrorism to obtain justice. Ulster Human Rights Watch have produced a Submission to Parliamentarians outlining its failings and the amendments that we believe are necessary to ensure that the rights of victims are protected.
