Welcome to the Blog
Human Rights in Ireland is a new blog with a focus on human rights issues in Ireland and on Irish scholarship about human rights more generally. The intention behind this blog is to provide an online arena for discussing issues arising in Ireland in relation to human rights, as well as publicising Irish work in this area. All of the contributors to this blog are academics, mostly lawyers, who are working either in Ireland or abroad and whose work relates broadly to human rights.
As you can see if you look at our About the Contributors page, our interests are varied-we include criminal lawyers, constitutional law experts, socio-economic rights scholars, legal philosophers and law and terrorism scholars. As a result, we intend to provide varied and diverse content relating to human rights. Comments are open on the blog, although your first comment will require moderation so please excuse any slight delay that may occur.
We hope that you will enjoy reading this blog and that you will get involved through your comments.
The HRinI team.
