"Ireland at the Crossroads"


Location: Hesburgh Center for International Studies Auditorium

Ireland Wborder Small

Since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 there has been a seamless border on the island of Ireland. Brexit brings with it the possibility of a return to a hard border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland as well as the potential for renewed instability on the island. Join us for a panel discussion of Brexit’s impact on Ireland, North and South, as well as the role of the United States in the region.
