CRR class attends discussion on new Sunningdale book at Department of Foreign Affairs

On Friday 8th December 2017, Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation staff and students were delighted to be the guests of Kevin Conmy, Joint Secretary of the Anglo-Irish Joint Secretariat in Belfast, at an event to mark the publication of a new book on the 1974 Sunningdale power-sharing agreement. The book is by renowned former Irish diplomat, and past member of the Irish School of Ecumenics Trust, Noel Dorr.

Dr Dorr discussed the themes of the book before Séamus Mallon, the veteran SDLP politician and former Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, gave his own response to the book and reflections on the period. The book is part memoir, part documented history of the first, failed attempt at power-sharing in the early years of the Northern Ireland 'Troubles'. Other attendees at the event included well-known figures from academia, politics and journalism.
