NI: QUB event to revisit 1978 Hooded Men case at ECtHR

The Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) Human Rights Centre and King’s College London will co-host an all-day event next week examining the landmark European Court of Human Rights judgment in Ireland v UK (18 January 1978).

The event stars in QUB’s Canada Room at 10:30am on Thursday 14 April and runs until 7:15pm before closing with a drinks reception.

The event description reads: “Through contributions by academics, practitioners, civil society, and the victims themselves, we trace the judgment’s enduring significance and controversy in the context of counter-terrorism in general and the prohibition of torture and inhuman and degrading treatment and punishment in particular.

“In light of Ireland’s application to re-open the case before the European Court of Human Rights, we consider current developments and prospects in Ireland v UK (No 2).”

More information is available on the Facebook event page.
