Sinn Féin - On Your Side

International Security Policy Consultative Forum Submission

21 July, 2023

Sinn Féin’s submission to the Consultative Forum on International Security Policy outlines our vision for Ireland – as a neutral and independent state – to play a constructive role in the wider world: committed to diplomacy, humanitarianism, peace-building and co-operation with other states on global challenges including poverty, world hunger, climate change, conflict resolution and migration. Our submission outlines our vision to enshrine the principle of neutrality within the Irish Constitution and EU treaties; to ensure Ireland can adapt to a changed Global Security Environment; to address the historic underinvestment in the Defence Forces; our approach to international and EU arrangements and organisations, underpinned by the Triple Lock and the United Nations; and Ireland’s opportunity to be a positive force for conflict-resolution across the globe.
