A case of Northsouthery?

As part of European Week Against Racism, the first North-South handbook on dealing with the issue has been launched today.

The National Consultative Committee on Racism says the problem is multi-faceted, spanning issues from discrimination in the workplace, verbal abuse, harassment and assaults to the distribution of offensive material on the internet.The calendar of events over the next week include over 30 events throughout Ireland.

Do we need anti-racism initiatives to have a North-South reference as advocated by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and the Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities or is this just a case of northsouthery for the sake of it?
