Truth, Amnesty and Prosecutions - Models for Dealing with the Past
Kieran Mc Evoy and Louise Mallinder at QUB | 03 December 2013
This brief document is one of a range produced by the authors as part of an ongoing project Amnesties, Prosecutions and the Public Interest in the Northern Ireland Transition. This project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), is a partnership between Queen’s University Belfast School of Law, the Transitional Justice Institute at the University of Ulster and the local NGO Healing Through Remembering. Drawing upon previous comparative work conducted by McEvoy and Mallinder (with Brice Dickson), this project is designed to provide legal, historical and international information to local stakeholders on dealing with the past related issues in order to let people ‘make up their own mind’ on these difficult and sensitive matters.
