On Thursday 26 May, the Community Relations Council hosted ‘Reconciling the Books: The Economic Case for Sharing’. The event, chaired by BBC’s Yvette Shapiro, saw community and political leaders come together to discuss what Northern Ireland needs for a stable economic future.
At the end of last year, Stratagem co-hosted an evening seminar with the Institute for British-Irish Studies (IBIS) (UCD), held at the Linen Hall Library discussing “Patterns of conflict resolution: How to draw lessons from Northern Ireland”. The audience enjoyed talks from Professor Jennifer Todd (UCD; Director, IBIS), Quintin Oliver (Director, Stratagem), Bronagh Hinds (DemocraShe) and Dawn Purvis MLA (Independent). Each gave their own insight into how the successes of Northern Ireland’s peace process could be translated to other countries in conflict.
