Peacebuilding in the Wake of Brexit

In collaboration with the National Committee on American Foreign Policy, the Program on Peace and Development is sponsoring a series on “Peacebuilding in the Wake of Brexit”. This series focuses on the North of/Northern Ireland during a time of great political and economic shifts. Various perspectives from community leaders, mostly from border counties or towns, highlight how recent developments affect everyday people as well as political possibilities. Interwoven with these perspectives are discussions with institutional figures who speak to more macro-level effects of Brexit and other sources of uncertainty on peace building in Ireland and the UK.
