Human Rights Based Approach to Peacebuilding and Reconciliation

In 2005, the Irish Centre for Human Rights was commissioned by Border Action, Monaghan to conduct research into the application of a human rights approach to peacebuilding and reconciliation. The aim of the recently completed report is to develop a framework for the implementation of a human rights approach in the Peace III Programme. Research on the project was carried out by the Centre’s Project Manager Peter Fitzmaurice aided by LLM students Catherine Joyce and Catherine McGrath under the supervision of Professor William Schabas. The report will be launched at a conference in the spring of 2007.
