The primary aim of my research is to investigate transitional justice in post-conflict societies, specifically in relation to Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland showcases that human rights violations can occur in highly developed democracies, committed to the rule of law alongside a plethora of protections designed to detect and protect victims of such violations within a democracy.
This context presents a valuable and pertinent case study to assess the legal and social constructions of justice that exist in a post conflict society and whether a legal mechanism could effectively deliver the kind of justice that the Northern Irish public desire.
