ARINS podcast episode 8: Implications for the Protection of Human Rights in a United Ireland03 February 2022
In this episode of the ARINS podcast, Brice Dickson and Rory Montgomery consider how the unification of Ireland could change the way in which human rights are protected.
One of the many perspectives from which the pros and cons of a united Ireland can be weighed is that of human rights protection. In a united Ireland how differently, if at all, would the human rights of people living in Northern Ireland or in Ireland be protected? In this month's episode of the ARINS podcast, Brice Dickson and Rory Montgomery look at the implications for the protection of human rights in a united Ireland.
