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.
