Reparations

Reparations in dealing with the past in Northern Ireland

Reparations in Northern Ireland have been neglected in most approaches in dealing with the past. As part of the Amnesties, Prosecution and Public Interest project the tem produced a blog on this issue: Amnesties, prosecutions and the right to reparations.

In October 2014 the Human Rights Centre along with the Commission for Victims and Survivors, Institute , and Healing through Remembering held the Remedying the Past, Healing for the Future conference in Queen’s University. The conference can be viewed on YouTube and the report can be found here.
