States of Fear: Industrial School SystemThrough survivor testimony and state archives, this episode reveals the vast network of industrial schools which existed in Ireland throughout the 20th century where tens of thousands of children were imprisoned and where many were physically and sexually abused.
A panel discussion, chaired by Mary Wilson, will examine the impact of States of Fear – on those who participated in it and on the nation who watched it. She will be joined by Patsy McGarry (The Irish Times), Catriona Crowe (National Archives of Ireland), and Colm O’Gorman (founder of One in Four, CEO of Amnesty Ireland).
