Upcoming Webinar: “Northern Ireland: Has Someone Stepped on Our Dreams”? By Trevor Reaney CBE MBA for the Centre for Opposition Studies and the Hume Institute for Post Graduate Studies, Lausanne on 8th July 2021 @ 5 – 6:30pm (BST)
In promoting peace and reconciliation in the run up to the Good Friday Agreement in the late 1990’s, a Van Morrison song entitled “Days Like This” was used in Government adverts. The song includes the line – “When no one steps on my dreams there’ll be days like this.” After more than two decades since the Good Friday Agreement, Trevor Reaney reflects on whether Northern Ireland has progressed as far as was dreamed in 1998. Trevor addresses the question from the perspective of his experience in local and regional government in Northern Ireland, including his time as Clerk and Chief Executive of the Northern Ireland Assembly.
