Also speaking at the launch minister of state David Stanton said: "Actions such as this go to the heart of what is needed - concrete steps to ensure that all groups and communities in an increasingly diverse society have the confidence that they are respected, valued and safe."

He said the Department of Justice is reviewing the Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act 1989 and a public consultation on the act is due to start shortly.

It is hoped the strategy will lead to improved trust and confidence in An Garda Siochana by all sections of society.
