(p.1) Introduction
The Macbride Principles

This introductory begins a discussion of the close ties between the US and UK, and Irish-Americans' search for a proactive policy to embarrass the British government and influence its policy in Northern Ireland. Their efforts resulted in the MacBride Principles, a set of affirmative action fair employment precepts. US corporations with Northern Ireland subsidiaries were urged to adopt these principles, which were aimed at ending employment discrimination against Catholics.

Keywords:   MacBride Principles, affirmative action, Northern Ireland, Catholics, UK, anti-Catholic discrimination, employment discrimination
