John Alderdice, by profession a psychoanalytic psychiatrist, was for eleven years Leader of the cross-community Alliance Party, one of the negotiators of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement and Speaker of the new Northern Ireland Assembly. He is the recipient of many honorary degrees and awards for his work on conflict resolution in various parts of the world and is Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party in the House of Lords.
This FREE public lecture offers important lessons learned from the Irish Peace Process about how communities can overcome what appears to be intractable violent conflict and work towards peace and stability.
