The Good Friday Agreement at 20

Tuesday 22 May 2018, 18:00

Twenty years since the approval of the Good Friday Agreement, this event looked at how power-sharing in Belfast worked until its recent collapse, the impact of Brexit on the Irish border and options for the future of Northern Ireland.

Our expert panel included three participants in the negotiations that led to the peace agreement:

  • Lord Bew, Chair of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, former adviser to Lord Trimble, First Minister of Northern Ireland
  • Mark Durkan, former SDLP leader and Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland
  • Tim O’Connor, Irish Government Negotiating Team Member, Good Friday Agreement and former Chief of Staff to the President of Ireland.

The event was chaired by Bronwen Maddox, Director of the Institute for Government.
