Conflict in Northern Ireland: 20th Anniversary of the IRA’s Ceasefire

Date: Thursday 8th May 2013, 10:00 – 15:00
Location: SR(8.49n) Worsely Building, University of Leeds

In 1994, the Provisional Irish Republican Army called a ceasefire that paved the way for the Northern Irish peace process and an end to the thirty-year conflict. Twenty years on, POLIS and the Terrorism and Political Violence Association invite you to the University of Leeds to discuss the legacy of this momentous event.

The workshop will be useful for students with an interest in conflict, peace studies and terrorism studies.
