Towards a New Common Chapter: Assessing the commitment to cross-border cooperation among grassroots community organisations

2.30pm, Monday 11th September

Venue: NICVA, Belfast.

During this event Dr Anthony Soares (Deputy Director, Centre for Cross Border Studies) presented the findings from an ongoing Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust funded project, “Towards a New Common Chapter”. This project has been assessing the extent to which cross-border cooperation is independently valued and enacted at the grass-roots level, and whether communities are setting their own priorities for inclusion in regional and local strategies on both sides of the border.

The presentation of the findings was followed by discussion with Seamus McAleavey (Chief Executive, NICVA) and Deirdre Garvey (Chief Executive, The Wheel).
