  • Peter Sutherland and the European Project

    Paul Gallagher SC

    Read Article Summary

    I am perhaps unusual among Peter Sutherland’s friends in that I only had the pleasure of knowing him for the last nine years of his life. Like many others, I was left with a profound sense of loss on his passing. His friendship was generous, kind and great fun. There was also a sense of Ireland’s great loss.

  • Peter Sutherland: A Jesuit Boy

    Noel Barber SJ

    Read Article Summary

    I am writing on Peter Sutherland as a ‘Jesuit boy’ not to insinuate that his place in history is due to his old school and the religious order that founded it.

  • Remembering Peter Sutherland

    The summer issue of Studies: An Irish Quarterly Review is dedicated in tribute to the memory of Peter Sutherland, former Attorney General of Ireland, founding director-general of the World Trade Organisation, UN special representative for international migration from 2006-2017 and patron of Studies.

    The centre-piece of the issue is a reproduction of a public lecture Chris Patten – now Lord Patten of Barnes CH, PC,– delivered in Dublin in February of this year, in honour of Sutherland.

    Other contributions relating to Sutherland respectively afford us a glimpse of the personal qualities of a popular and hardworking individual, the impact and consequence of his Jesuit education and his expertise and commitment to a Europe united by free trade, as envisioned by Jean Monnet. A recent biography of Sutherland by John Walsh is also reviewed in the issue.

    Alive, awake, alert, generous, good humoured, warm-hearted, energetic, funny, loyal, reliable, committed and sometimes difficult are all words that come to mind when thinking of Peter Sutherland. I first met him in the autumn of 1954 when we both arrived at Gonzaga College.
