University of Liverpool academic Dr Amanda Cahill-Ripley will speak at a discussion event focussed on attitudes and engagement of the Protestant Unionist Loyalist (PUL) community with human rights. The event will take place in Belfast on Wednesday 11 December 2019.

One of the main principals of human rights is its universality to every human being. How is that reflected in principle and practice within the PUL community in Northern Ireland? Do barriers to the enjoyment and utilisation of rights exist and how should they be overcome?

Join a panel of local PUL activists to discuss these issues alongside Dr Amanda Cahill-Ripley (University of Liverpool) who will present her own research on this important topic.



A panel of speakers giving their own 10-minute reflections on the topic before wider discussion and engagement with the audience.   



  • Chair, Jonathan Hodge, Perspectives Magazine

  • Joe Passmore, UNITE
