Sponsored by Irish Northern Aid and Ancient Order of Hibernians, come hear and meet Mark Thompson, a founding member and the CEO of Relatives for Justice.
Mark is a founder member and the CEO of Relatives for Justice.
Mark is responsible for the strategic development and management of Relatives for Justice and has overseen the growth of the organisation from a successful and dedicated voluntary campaigning group to the professional human rights, advocacy and support organisation that sets the bar on best practice for victims and survivors of conflict. This is an holistic model of support for families affected by conflict violations, ensuring effective support for redressing human rights abuses partnered by a range of services including therapeutic support.
Mark’s experience in pro-actively holding those responsible to account and in ensuring that the needs and experiences of victims of the conflict are identified and championed makes him one of the most recognisable and respected international figures in the debate on how we Deal with the Past. He has made representations on families’ behalf at US Congress and the United Nations, European Parliament, European Court, as well as to governments in both Britain and Ireland.
