NasCSO Roundtable Meeting : Equality and Diversity
Updated: Mar 9
In this NasCSO Roundtable, representatives from civil society organisations working on women’s issues and LGBTQ+ equality sat down for a conversation with Irish MEPs Clare Daly, Frances Fitzgerald and Barry Andrews and representatives from European Movement Ireland and the European Parliament Liaison Office in Ireland. Issues raised and discussed included challenges faced by women during the Covid-19 pandemic, threats to equality and freedom for LGBTQ+ people in Hungary and Poland and recent work by the European Parliament in these areas. Watch back MEPs’ contributions and learn more about NasCSO in this snapshot video from our most recent NasCSO meeting.
The NasCSO project supports civil society organisations across Ireland in developing their connections with the European Parliament through online resources and networks, and a series of thematic roundtable meetings of CSOs in a variety of sectors and regions of Ireland with European Parliament representatives. These meetings will offer CSO representatives an opportunity to engage directly with Irish MEPs and other European Parliament representatives on issues of importance to their organisation. NasCSO also provides a network of CSOs in Ireland, to allow organisations to connect with others in their sector and/or region for collaboration and support.
