Join us for a public lecture with Peace Scholar Paul Arthur on "The Northern Ireland Peace Process: Then and Now."
In spite of a recent resurgence of unrest in Northern Ireland, the region has generally enjoyed over a decade of peace since the Good Friday accord. This peace was hard won and orchestrated by experienced practitioners in negotiations and peacebuilding. With recently enacted reforms in Northern Ireland, its leaders have greater authority to guide the region and to develop a thriving sector of life in Ireland, with economic and human security. It is indeed a pivotal moment in Northern Ireland’s efforts towards a new form of governance. Peace Scholar Paul Arthur will share his insights on the current status of Northern Ireland's peace process.
Professor Arthur was one of the negotiators who was deeply involved in bringing about the peace treaty in Northern Ireland and is a leading authority on how to resolve Anglo-Irish political disputes. He is frequently consulted by policy makers as the Irish government considers new policy reforms.
