What Survivors Want: Part Two – A Compensation Framework for Historic Abuses in Residential Institutions

In response to Northern Ireland survivor’s demands for redress to commence without delay and to facilitate access to justice, a series of meetings, workshops, round tables and seminars were held, sponsored by the Ulster University, where redress was objectively discussed by many experts and survivors.

An Expert Panel was then established and commissioned two reports. On March 15, 2016, survivors launched their first Report titled, What Survivors Want From Redress, setting out the fundamental guiding principles for redress and an outline of a voluntary redress plan. This report builds on the first Report and sets out detailed recommendations for a framework for compensation,and other forms of redress.

This second Report presents a comprehensive study of a cost effective, reasonable redress plan as an alternative to civil court proceedings.
