Ards and North Down Borough Council is holding a series of lectures entitled “Towards Reconciliations in Northern Ireland.”

The 3-part series of lectures will be delivered by Professor Peter Shirlow and will be followed by Q&A sessions. The event takes place 23—25 February 2021 from 7—9 PM on zoom.

The three lectures are:

  • Where have we come from? – An overview of conflict and what has happened over the past 50 years.
  • What does change mean? – The shift out of violence has led to significant changes in society and a younger population that has very different ideas about the past, the present and the future.
  • The next generation of reconciliation – Evidence of a changing society, but are we living in a negative peace?
