Transatlantic Conversations
The U.S. Role in Renewing
the Peace Process

The Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool joins with the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies (Notre Dame) to launch Transatlantic Conversations. The Zoom webinar three-part series is dedicated to the Next Generation of the Irish Peace Process.

The United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union raised concerns that a hard border would be implemented on the island of Ireland. But the eventual agreement—The Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland—has raised constitutional concerns and tensions surrounding identity as well as worries about trade disruptions.

Given these challenges, how can policymakers build on past success during the next generation of the Irish peace process? What does the Protocol mean and how can it drive conflict transformation? And what role can the US play in sustaining peace through economic development?

The webinar series is presented by the Keough School of Global Affairs and its Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, and by the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Irish Studies and will focus on a series of policy discussions to hear insights on these issues.

During the three-part webinar series, researchers and government officials will share evidence-based approaches for addressing tensions and pursuing post-Brexit opportunities for Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States to engage strategically in support of peace and prosperity.
