7 March 2006
Stormont Hotel, Belfast

At the launch of the first Journal of Cross Border Studies in Ireland in Belfast on 7 March 2006 were (from left to right): Joe Hayes (Joint Secretary, North/South Ministerial Council), Nigel Hamilton (Head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service), Mary Bunting (Joint Secretary North/South Ministerial Council), Chris Gibson (Chairman, Centre for Cross Border Studies) and Iognaid Ó Muircheartaigh (President, Universities Ireland)

The first issue of The Journal of Cross Border Studies in Ireland was launched in Belfast on 7 March 2006 by the Head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service, Mr Nigel Hamilton. Its appearance is timely, as both the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Mr Hain, and the Taoiseach, Mr Ahern, have recently re-emphasised the importance of North/South co-operation to mutual benefit as a cornerstone of the peace process and the implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.
