London barrister Sailesh Mehta, of Verulam Chambers, was legal observer for an international delegation visiting Northern Ireland this month to monitor marches and demonstrations by Protestant and Catholic communities.
The delegation, organised jointly by War On Want and the human rights group Solidar, met RUC representatives in Belfast before witnessing crowd disturbances in Derry, Dunloy and Bellaghy following the controversial Apprentice Boys' marches. It also consulted representatives for the marchers and residents.
Mehta is chair of the Society of Asian Lawyers and a member of the Bar's human rights committee. He described the experience as "exciting stuff".
A report of the delegation's observations and members' experiences of conflict resolution in other parts of the world is being prepared by War On Want's Conor Foley.
