Response to inquiry into the effect of paramilitaries on NI society
CAJ has responded to the NI Affairs Committee inquiry into ‘The effect of paramilitaries on society in Northern Ireland’ (which closed in May). Our submission focuses on one key issue – the link between paramilitarism and housing intimidation.
Tackling housing segregation in Northern Ireland has been long raised as one of the key factors in ensuring greater integration and tackling housing inequality. However, only limited attention has been given to the major driving factor behind housing segregation – paramilitary intimidation from housing. We believe this must change.
