British-Irish Association, Oxford 7-9 September

The British-Irish Association (BIA) annual conference, attended by CCBS Director Ruth Taillon, took place in Oxford on 7-9 September. The Association conference is an opportunity for politicians, civil servants, academics and others with an interest in the politics of and relationships between our islands. This year, more than 160 delegates gathered for a series of interesting presentations from keynotes and panellists and not surprisingly much of the formal and informal conversations focused on Brexit and the political situation in Northern Ireland.
