Hunger Strikes in Prison: The Legal Issues


I contributed a paper on "Hunger Strikes in Prison: the Legal Issues" to a University College Cork conference this week.

The conference was "Terence MacSwiney, Cork Men’s Gaol, and the Political Hunger Strike, 1920-2020" and it was organised by the School of History.

My paper draws on themes discussed in this paper: Gautam Gulati, Darius Whelan, Eimear Spain, David Meagher & Colum Dunne, ‘Hunger Strikes in Prison: a Legal Perspective for Psychiatrists’ (2019) 36 Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine 55.  

My slides for the paper are available here.
