Abstract

Developments to control sex offenders after the expiration of their punishment – justified in effect as aform of supplementary child protection-have flourished in the U.K. and the U.S. during the 1990s.With the Sex Offenders Bill 2000, Ireland seems to have succumbed to the trend. Various measures,chiefly copied form the U.K., are to be introduced by this legislation. This article casts a critical eyeover these initiative with a view to stimulating a debate on the best way to balance the need to protectchildren (and vulnerable adults) and the need to allow the sex offender to re-integrate into society
