About Us

The Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations promotes Ireland's foreign policy interests and values at the UN.

Our membership of the United Nations has been central to Ireland’s foreign policy since we joined in 1955. The principles and values enshrined in the UN Charter are those we have always strived to promote and protect.

The principles and values enshrined in the UN Charter are common collective goals, and include:

  • maintaining international peace and security;
  • promoting the peaceful settlement of disputes;
  • promoting and protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms; and
  • promoting economic and social development.

We take seriously our obligations under the UN Charter and our foreign policy is framed with these obligations in mind. At the UN, Ireland seeks to translate the principles and values of the UN Charter into effective international action on a range of global challenges:

  • combating global poverty and hunger and devising a new development framework for the period 2015 – 2030;
  • ensuring international peace and security;
  • defending human rights; and
  • eliminating the threat posed by nuclear weapons.
