This event has now concluded. A full-length video is available below.

Twenty years after the Good Friday Agreement, this forum will look at the lessons that can be shared from the Northern Ireland peace process in the context of other peace processes, looking specifically at the Colombian accord. What lessons can be shared and applied? And what role has international support played in these peace processes?
