Description
Summary:Northern Ireland has entered what is arguably the key phase in its troubled political history - truth recovery and dealing with the legacy of the past - yet the void in knowledge and the lack of academic literature with regard to victims' rights is particularly striking.

It proposes a new model of victim and perpetrator dialogue that is entirely victim-centred, suggesting that only a 'moral bottom line' in which violence is dismissed as universally wrong can assists in the effective democratic reconstruction of Northern Ireland.
