Event description
Northern Ireland: "There’s peace now, right?" A conversation with Marie Breen-Smyth

About this event

Marie Breen-Smyth will discuss the background to the peace agreements from 1998 onward in Northern Ireland. The lecture will assess the extent to which you can describe the current situation as ‘peaceful’ given the political threats of BREXIT, the Protocol and COVID. All of these will be explained. No prior knowledge is necessary.

Professor Marie Breen-Smyth is a distinguished scholar of political violence, conflict and international relations who was Associate Dean and Professor in the University of Surrey, Reader in International Politics in Aberystwyth University in the United Kingdom and previously Jennings Randolph Senior Fellow at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington DC. She has had a long career as both a scholar and a practitioner working on the conflicts in Northern Ireland, the Middle East, Southern and West Africa, and has taught at Smith College and worked as a licensed couples and family therapist in Massachusetts and elsewhere. She was active in peace-building in the Northern Irish peace process, and her research covers a diverse array of areas including human security, victim politics and the impact of armed conflict, the role of children in conflict in the United States and Northern Ireland, transitional justice, and post-conflict reconstruction. Marie has recently taught as a Visiting Professor in the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security and Global Governance and is Founder and Director of the Summer Institute in Community Peacebuilding in Armagh, Northern Ireland.
