The Right to Not Be Bounded Thusly
Conflicts & Negotiations Project
2018-19 MA cohort



“The Right To Not Be Bounded Thusly”, a People’s Tribunal on the Irish Border at the Lewisham Irish Community Centre, organised by MA Research Architecture students, 13 May 2019.

This event utilised testimony, visual evidence, and documentation collected during fieldwork in Northern Ireland to make a series of speculative legal claims across contested sites. The research engaged with the Irish Border in terms of its historical political tensions as well as via less visible forms of violence such as resource extraction, environmental infrastructure, and smart technologies. The cases presented were be followed by a critical response from invited guests.
