O'Neill Chair in Peace, invite you to the online seminar series "Dealing with the Past in Northern Ireland" Seminar Seminar "Dealing with the Past and the SHA: Is a transformative gender approach possible?" by Claire Hackett and Catherine O'Rourke This seminar will reflect on the exclusion of women and gender from dominant approaches to dealing with the past in the north. It will discuss a specific intervention to remedy these absences and silences, namely the development of Gender Principles for Dealing with the Legacy of the Past by a network of women drawn from academia, the human rights and victims sectors. The seminar will further reflect on the opportunity to address gender more broadly in any process to deal with the past, in particular the inclusion of LGBTQ experiences and perspectives. The seminar reflects on some of the reasons why these perspectives have been so absent from the primary debate, and considers possible strategies and approaches for devising a more gender-inclusive process. Presenter Claire Hackett, Healing Through Remembering & Falls Community Council Catherine O'Rourke, Director, Transitional Justice Institute, Ulster University RSVP essential to receive the live stream link which will be sent 48 hours before the seminar

Human Rights – a Legacy of the Holocaust

June 24 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, developed as a response to the horrors of the Holocaust and co-drafted by our namesake, starts with the preamble ‘Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people…’ This talk will explore how the modern human rights framework evolved as a response to the horrors of the Holocaust. It will show how Jewish experience, Jewish values and, crucially, Jewish human rights heroes have helped influence and shape the modern human rights framework and its legacy for the future. Presenter: Mia Hasenson-Gross, René Cassin's Executive Director
