Belfast Project

Boston College is being sued by a former Irish Republican Army soldier who contributed to the university's oral history project about civil unrest in Northern Ireland, raising questions about international contract law.

Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams remains in an Irish prison, being questioned about the murder of a Belfast woman in 1972. 

It’s widely believed that information from a Boston College oral history project that was supposed to be kept confidential helped lead to Adams's arrest. Now, some are questioning how this case will impact academic freedom and inquiry on campus.
