Political vetting of community work in Northern Ireland
Political Vetting of Community Work Working Group
Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action
In April 1990 the Community Workers' Co-op and the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action organised a very well attended, broad based conference at Queen's University to discuss issues arising from the Government's policy of political vetting and it's effect on community work. It was quite clear from the conference that the effects of political vetting were much wider than those dozen or so groups directly penalised. This is primarily a report of the conference but also includes an update of the latest victim of this policy the Irish language group Glór na nGael.
