The Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft was founded in 1949 to foster friendship between Germany and the UK. The usual physical meetings are not possible at the moment, so the organisation is testing the online waters with an event on 29th June at 18:00 on ‘The Future of the Island of Ireland’.
“The “backstop”, probably the most contested issue in the first chapter of the Brexit negotiations between the UK government and the European Union, has been replaced with an alternative trading scheme, allowing the Irish Border to be kept open.”
Lisa Claire Whitten, Queen’s University Belfast and Mary C. Murphy, University of Cork will talk about what’s next for Northern Ireland, how the outcome of Ireland’s General Election can be explained and what this means for the UK and the EU.
The event has already generated a lot of interest, but the DBG has been able to extend capacity. So if you would like to attend, register as soon as possible via the link below.
