This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising, a milestone of huge significance in the history of Ireland, and specifically in the relationship with Britain. Today that relationship has never been stronger, built upon momentous recent occasions, such as the State Visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Ireland and the return visit from Irish President Michael D Higgins. But at a time of rapid technological advancement, with looming questions on the structure of the European Union, as well as wider international challenges on migration, energy and the environment – where next for these two island nations in the changing landscape.
LIBS in association with the Embassy of Ireland invite you to join us in the Centenary year of this milestone for an evening that will look towards the future rather than history, and imagine the Britain and Ireland fifty years from now. The discussion will explore areas of cooperation and competition in ensuring mutual growth and prosperity, and the challenges and opportunities for the continued strong relations between the UK and Ireland.
Tickets are available free to our members, on a first come, first served basis via our Eventbrite page.
