Centre for Cross Border Studies Policy Seminar – Healing, Learning and Citizens’ Rights: Crossing Borders

10am, Tuesday 10th October.

Venue: Brussels.

Issues related to Ireland and the Irish border have been designated by the EU Commission as one of the three priorities to be dealt with in the Exit negotiations before talks can move on to future relations between the UK and the European Union. The Centre for Cross Border Studies is convening this seminar to address some of the most important challenges for the island of Ireland. These will include addressing the continuing health and social needs of victims and survivors of the conflict; the impacts of Brexit on higher education north and south of the border; the rights of citizens; and possible ‘solutions’ for the Irish Border. 

Speakers

  • Judith Thompson, Commissioner for Victims and Survivors
  • Ryan Feeney, Head of Public Engagement, Queen’s University Belfast
  • Kevin Hanratty, Director, Human Rights Consortium
  • Anthony Soares, Deputy Director, Centre for Cross Border Studies
