Kieran McEvoy

McEvoy is a reader in law at the School of Law, Queen’s University of Belfast. He conducted a major comparative study on prisoner release at the end of periods of violent conflict, which proved of great value to those negotiating the prisoner release provision of the Good Friday Agreement. While at Harvard, McEvoy wrote about the ways in which community based programs may foster and encourage a broader ownership and attachment to human rights principles, particularly in communities used to resolving disputes through violence. This planned book, Restorative Justice: Theory, Practice and Critique, was published by Sage (with Harry Mika) in December 2001.
