The 2010 Journal of Cross Border  Studies in Ireland was launched in Dublin by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Micheál Martin, on 21 April. In his remarks Mr Martin said: “I was delighted to attend the opening of the Centre for Cross Border Studies in Armagh as Minister for Education in November 1999, and I have watched with admiration as the Centre has gone from strength to strength over more than a decade since. This has been a courageous and pioneering initiative begun and sustained at times of considerable political uncertainty. The extremely high quality of the Centre’s research and analysis is understood and respected now by decision-makers throughout the island, as well as by academics and practitioners further afield. The Journal we are launching today can only add, once again, to that fine reputation. This new edition is packed tight with informative opinion and insightful comment and will provide much food for thought for policy-makers and commentators North and South over the period ahead.”
