We have the pleasure of being able to welcome you to the inaugural event of the ‘Promise of Peace in Northern Ireland’ project on 24th of June, in Riddel Hall, Queen’s University, Belfast :
‘Celebration and Commemoration’
With an opening address by Professor Thomas Hennessey, Canterbury Christchurch University followed by a roundtable discussion, we warmly welcome your attendance and participation.
Tea & coffee 9.30am for 10.am start. The event will be followed by lunch at 12.30pm
The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity to reflect upon how commemoration has been celebrated, policed and responded to since the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement. We also hope to take the opportunity to open-up discussion about contemporary commemoration and deliberate on ways to take the issue forward in light of the Decade of Commemorations.
