Event description
Our panel discuss the growing tensions in Northern Ireland in this livestreamed event.

About this event

The outbreak of violence in Belfast, Derry and across County Antrim since Good Friday has shaken many in Northern Ireland and led to calls for urgent action. The riots reflect growing tensions in loyalist communities since border checks came into force in January, and anxiety about Northern Ireland’s constitutional position post-Brexit.

Many have long predicted that Brexit will have an impact on the set of compromises and arrangements that make up the Good Friday agreement. In the short months since Brexit, the protocol has already been tested during the EU vaccine rollout, and the DUP have called for it to be scrapped.

In the month that Northern Ireland commemorates its centenary, our panel, with chair, Ireland Correspondent Rory Carroll, Guardian Brexit correspondent Lisa O’Carroll, Alliance Party Leader, Naomi Long and DUP MP, Carla Lockhart, will be exploring this complex situation as it develops, including discussions around the potential response from Stormont and Westminster, and an exploration into the root causes of tensions in local communities. Crucially, they will be asking: how can Northern Ireland move forward from this moment?
