Introduction to the project


For a number of years Professor Kieran McEvoy has been leading a team of researchers and human rights activists based at Queen’s University Belfast and the principal human rights NGO in Northern Ireland, the Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ). The purpose of the work is to inform key debates on dealing with the past in Northern Ireland and in particular to provide accessible legal and policy commentary to the British and Irish governments, political parties, civil society organisations, victims and survivors, former security force personnel, ex-prisoners and the wider public) and international organisations (e.g. the United Nations and international human rights NGOs).
