The Future of Cross-Border Cooperation: on the island of Ireland, between the island and Great Britain, and beyond

On 10th October 2016 the Centre for Cross Border Studies held an important discussion event on the future of Cross-Border Cooperation in the wake of the UK’s referendum on membership of the European Union. The event which took place at the Northern Ireland Executive Office in Brussels provided a vital opportunity to debate how cross-border cooperation can continue to contribute to the socio-economic development of border regions, it also focused on three core issues:

  • The role of cross-border cooperation in supporting peace and reconciliation
  • Cross-border collaboration between local authorities
  • Active citizen participation in cross-border cooperation
