CEPL is one of the partners engaged in promoting discussion of the Truth Recovery Process.
This is led by a group of individuals, North and South, who believe that the Truth Recovery Process offers the best means of addressing the ongoing issues of harm, trauma, political intractability and social division left by the Troubles. They believe that reconciliation on, and acknowledgement of the facts is a necessary first step to genuine reconciliation between people and communities. They seek to advance these objectives by engaging with everyone interested in resolving Legacy issues, from victim/survivors to former combatants, and from policy makers to members of the public interested in discussing the Truth Recovery Process and how best to bring it about.
On 26th November 2021, CEPL hosted a public forum to discuss a legal opinion on the compatibility of the Truth Recovery Process with the European Convention on Human Rights, the issue being whether it represented a sort of amnesty for murder which would contravene the Convention on the right to life.
