Event description

Description

The Northern Ireland Troubles is the defining conflict in Britain's postwar history and a key case study in writings on insurgency and terrorism. Resulting in around 3,600 deaths and 40,000 serious injuries, the conflict's legacy dominates both individual lives and national politics today. How to deal with the legacy of the past is now a major challenge for Northern Ireland.

Open to the public, this event brings together former paramilitaries and soldiers who served in Northern Ireland, to discuss their experiences of the conflict and how we can deal with the difficult past to ensure future peace.
