Two Models of Monetary Redress: A Structural Analysis

 

Roughly two years ago Right of Place Second Chance met with Mr. Stephen Winter MD from the Department of Politics & Internation Relations, University of Auckland, New Zealand.

He spent time in Ireland in order to Analyise the idea of Monetary Redress to Survivors. When he got in contact with our services we were delighted to partake and help him in his work. We believe anything that can help learn lessons from Redress and can academically evaluate the success or otherwise of redress to Survivors was worthwile. The ultimate goal is to not only inform future generations, but equally importantly to investigate the effect on Survivors lives.

We still strongly believe that the understanding of the often negative effects of Redress to Survivors is not truly understood and academic work such as this that can help to hilight this is imperative to the future well being of Survivors.

This particular published work covers;

ABSTRACT

"Monetary redress is a developing area of human rights policy. The article examines how a redress program’s design affects the interests of program applicants. It distinguishes two program models, individual assessment and common experience, and explores their differing effects on applicants’ interests. Analyzing two Irish cases, redress for survivors of the industrial schools and the Magdalene laundries, the discussion is applicable to a wide range of redress programs including those in postconflict, transitional justice, and postcolonial contexts."
