Human rights must be contextual in the conversational debate. Not as distant aspirations for the future, but now: remember once again the implications of „equivalence“ and the opportunity to now take advantage of a gradual change that will mark the future of this island. The multi-party agreement required the parties to „use all the influences they might have“ to obtain the dismantling of all paramilitary weapons within two years of the adoption of the agreement by referendums. The standardization process has forced the British government to reduce the number and role of its armed forces in Northern Ireland „to a level compatible with a normal peaceful society.“ These include the elimination of security measures and the abolition of special emergency powers in Northern Ireland. The Irish government has pledged to conduct a „thorough review“ of its violations of national law. The participants in the agreement were composed of two sovereign states (the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland), with armed forces and police forces involved in the riots. Two political parties, Sinn Féin and the Progressive Unionist Party (PUP), were linked to paramilitary organisations: the IRA (Commissional Irish Republican Army) and the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF). The Ulster Democratic Party (UDP), associated with the Ulster Defence Association (UDA), had withdrawn from the talks three months earlier. New YouGov polls have shown that most people are unaware of the role played by human rights legislation in the Northern Ireland peace agreement. 74% of respondents were unaware that the human rights law was part of the peace agreement.
Today, one in two people (49%) Those who expressed their opinion indicated that they would be concerned if the repeal of the Human Rights Act had led to the need for an overhaul of the peace agreement. The Good Friday Agreement (GFA) or the Belfast Agreement (irish: Comhaonté Aoine an Chéasta or Comhaonté Bhéal Feirste; Ulster-Scots: Guid Friday Greeance or Bilfawst Greeance) is a couple of agreements signed on 10 April 1998 that put an end to most of the violence of the Troubles, a political conflict in Northern Ireland that had erupted since the late 1960s. This was an important development in the Northern Ireland peace process in the 1990s. Northern Ireland`s current system of de-decentralized government is based on the agreement. The agreement also created a number of institutions between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as well as between the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom.
