  • Groundhog Day: Five Years on from the Bill of Rights Advice

    Friday 13 December
    Belfast Campus of University of Ulster Rm 82D23 and Magee Campus of the University of Ulster Rm ME013B (via videolink)


    On December 10th, 2008 the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission delivered its long awaited advice on a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland to the Secretary of State.  During the last five years we have seen the Secretary of State’s controversial response to this advice and the completion of a report on a UK Bill of Rights. We have also seen the issue of a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland raised before UN human rights bodies.

    Our speakers will be addressing Why no bill of Rights five years on? Why Northern Ireland (still) needs a Bill of Rights; Where to from here?


    This event is organised by LLM students on TJI’s Human Rights Law and Transitional Justiceprogramme
