Online Seminar Series on Dealing with the Past in Northern Ireland: Deepening the Debate

A seminar series exploring the Stormont House Agreement and dealing with the past in Northern Ireland.


The Stormont House Agreement lays out a framework for the development of a range of institutions seeking to address the past in Northern Ireland. The New Decade, New Approach deal, includes a commitment to legislate within 100 days to implement the Agreement. However, doubts remain if this will transpire. It is critical that the debate however continues. The Transitional Justice Institute (TJI) and INCORE, in partnership with Healing Through Remembering and the John Hume and Thomas P. O'Neill Chair in Peace, will be hosting an online seminar series to debate these important issues.
