Model Bill Team initial response to legacy and reconciliation bill
Comprised of experts from QUB and CAJ, the Model Bill Team has worked for almost a decade to find human rights compliant solutions to the legal and political challenges regarding dealing with the past in Northern Ireland. The group has analysed the Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill – which is currently on its second reading in the UK House of Commons – and has concluded the bill is unworkable, in breach of the Good Friday Agreement and binding international law, and unable to deliver for victims and survivors.
