The Banking Crisis a Decade Later – Victim and Public Perspectives on Apologies in Ireland
Thursday 27th September 2018
The Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin, Ireland
This event is hosted by a cross-disciplinary research team from Queen’s University Belfast working on an ESRC-funded project: ‘Apologies, Abuses and Dealing with the Past: A Socio-legal Analysis’. The event marks the 10-year anniversary (on 29 September 2018) of the Irish government’s guarantee of the liabilities of all domestic banks – a controversial decision that turned private debt into sovereign debt and which had enormous implications for Irish economic, political and social life.
