Description

Twenty Years after the Belfast Agreement 1998: A Young Person’s Guide to the Future

The Royal Irish Academy is organising a conversation about the main issues facing young people in Ireland twenty years after the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement. A panel made up of young people from both sides of the border, along with a variety of other speakers, will discuss the challenges facing those born around the year 1998, as Ireland seeks to move on into a post peace process future.

  • Dr Dirk Schubotz, School of Social Science, Education, and Social Work, Queen’s University Belfast. Director Annual Young Life and Times (YLT) Survey.
  • Siobhán Fenton, writer and freelance journalist. She writes investigations and features on social justice issues, with a particular focus on gender and politics.
