US Book Launch of REDRESS, Ireland's Institutions and Transitional Justice, University College Dublin Press
REDRESS: Ireland’s Institutions and Transitional Justice explores the ways in which Ireland – North and South – treats those who suffered in Magdalene Laundries, Mother and Baby Homes, County Homes, industrial and reformatory schools, and Ireland’s closed and secretive adoption system over the last one hundred years.
How will Ireland redress its legacy of institutional abuse and forced adoption? What constitutes justice? How might democracy evolve if the survivors’ experiences and expertise were allowed to lead the response to a century of gender and family separation-based abuses? These are the questions to which this collection of essays seeks answers. The publication has its origins in the ILA Major-Grant-Award-funded Towards Transitional Justice conference, which took place on the BC campus in November 2018.
