The Institute of Irish Studies is hosting a discussion which will discuss how historic grievances and potential conflict might be defused, with the help of international diplomacy.
Chaired by Blair Chair Director of the Institute Professor Marianne Elliott, Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation will include panel members Martti Ahtisaari, President of Finland 1994-2000 and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Lord David Owen, former Chancellor of the University and UK Foreign Secretary, Francesc Vendrell, a Spanish diplomat and Dáithí O’Ceallaigh, Director General of the Institute of International and European Affairs in Dublin.
The speakers will address the difficult issue of how the necessarily lengthy process of peace-building in the aftermath of ethno-religious conflict can be sustained, given the ‘short-termism’ of national and international politics.
The discussion, in association with the British Academy, is on Tuesday 1 February at 6pm and will be held in the Eleanor Rathbone Theatre, Eleanor Rathbone Building. The discussion is free, but registration is required for the event, email Dorothy.email@example.com
