10-Minute Talks: What does the Good Friday Agreement mean?
by Professor Christopher McCrudden FBA
24 Mar 2021
The world’s leading professors explain the latest thinking in the humanities and social sciences in just 10 minutes.
As the Good Friday Agreement moves closer and closer to centre stage in Anglo-Irish relations, and potentially to UK-EU relations post-Brexit, how it is interpreted will become even more contentious. In this talk, Christopher McCrudden engages with the differing (and conflicting) historical, legal, and political interpretations as well as considering more broadly, what exactly is the Agreement?
Speaker: Professor Christopher McCrudden FBA, Professor of Human and Equality Law, Queen’s University Belfast
This talk is part of the Imagine! Belfast Festival of Ideas and Politics 2021.
