Event Description

Fordham Law School will be hosting the Irish Famine Tribunal to examine the responsibility of the British Government, under international law, for the tragic consequences of this period. Was it the case, as John Mitchel famously (or infamously) asserted, that “the Almighty, indeed, sent the potato blight, but the English created the famine”?

I'll be interested to hear if The Trribunal determines that the British role during the Famine amounted to either genocide or a crime against humanity.
