Research for the chapter was originally conducted in Ireland from June to July 2012 with financial support from the Boston College University Fellowships Committee, the Winston Center for Leadership and Ethics, the Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy, and the Office of AHANA Student Programs. I also received additional financial support from the Atlantic Coast Conference-International Academic Collaborative. I am especially grateful for the feedback and support pro?vided to me by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission staff, and I additionally am thankful for the opportunity to lend my research assistance to some of the IHREC’s projects. The views presented in this chapter are mine alone, and do not represent the views of Boston College, the Atlantic Coast Conference, the IHREC, the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation, or the Fulbright-Schuman Program.
