    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Debates on criminal justice, police powers and human rights of the accused were present throughout much of 2007 in the Republic of Ireland. Human rights concerns were raised in relation to the introduction of anti-social behaviour orders, the continuing focus on ‘balance’ within the Irish criminal justice system and limitations on the right to silence. There were also some positive developments in the field of human rights,including the introduction of the Prison Rules.
