Description

The Nevin Economic Research Institute (NERI) is delighted to announce Professor Kevin O’Rourke will give this year's Annual Dónal Nevin lecture. We hope you can join us on December 12th. The details are as follows:

Title: Brexit in historical perspective

Speakers: Professor Kevin O’Rourke, University of Oxford
Date: 12 December 2016
Time: Registration at 17:00. The lecture will run from 17.30 - 19:00 and will be followed by a wine and finger food reception.
Location: The Canada Room and Council Chamber, Lanyon Building, Queen's University Belfast, Belfast, BT7 1NN

Brexit is arguably the most significant geopolitical challenge that Western Europe has had to face since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Added to this, the rise of populism calls into question the future of the European Union itself. In order to fully understand the origin and impact of these challenges it is necessary to put them into some historical context. Professor O’Rourke will consider the issues presented by Brexit by asking the questions ‘How did we get here and what might the future hold?’

Dr Hayward, who has presented widely on the topic of Brexit and Northern Ireland/Ireland, will provide a formal response to the lecture by Professor O’Rourke. In doing so, Dr Hayward will contextualise and comment on the arguments made in relation to Northern Ireland and allow the audience to engage with how Brexit and more generally the anti-globalisation backlash has played out in Northern Ireland.
