Since 1998, Ireland and Northern Ireland have enjoyed a seamless border, an integral element of the Good Friday Agreement and a symbol of its enduring success. But if the UK leaves the European Union without an agreement on 31 October, as its government has threatened, it risks the return of a hard border and with it renewed instability on the island of Ireland.
The US played a pivotal role in facilitating peace in Northern Ireland. What steps might the US now take to safeguard that legacy? And what challenges might it face in doing so? Join us for a panel discussion of Brexit’s impact on Ireland and the role of the United States in the region, featuring Daniel Mulhall, current Ambassador of Ireland to the United States.
Reception to follow, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Presented by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies.
