DCU’s James Gallen appointed to assist Commission on Mother and Baby Homes

Dr James Gallen of the DCU School of Law and Government has been appointed by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs as an expert adviser to assist the Commission on Mother and Baby Homes by mapping out a model of ‘transitional justice’ as a means of giving voice to former residents of Mother and Baby Homes and County Homes.

Dr Gallen’s expertise in transitional justice will help to develop an approach which can acknowledge the experiences of former residents and further enhance public awareness and understanding of this part of our history.
