Debate: A House Divided?

Northern Ireland – democratic future or peace at any price?

Tuesday 16 February, 7-9 pm (doors open 6’45)
Belfast Exposed gallery, 23 Donegall Street, Belfast BT1

Amidst rumour, scandal and in fighting, as the NI Assembly lurches from one crisis to the next, the Belfast Salon considers alternatives to the existing political stalemate. Is perpetual crisis the price we pay for peace? Can devolution deliver on democracy? How do we move on from the past to address the economic and social questions that will shape our futures?

Speakers: Jason Walsh (editor forth), Owen Polley (journalist), Liam O’Dowd (Queen’s University, Belfast) Malachi O’Doherty (journalist), Chair: Pauline Hadaway
