The collapse of the DUP-Sinn Fein executive at Stormont over the Renewable Heat Incentive scandal has plunged Northern Ireland into a fresh political crisis. With the UK’s departure from the EU threatening to create a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, the future of the province is once again uncertain. 

This week’s British Politics seminar brings together three experts on Irish politics to discuss the forthcoming Assembly elections and prospects for the future: Dr Ultán Gillen (historian, University of Teesside), Kaitlin Ball (PhD candidate at POLIS) and Ruaidhri Dowling (Head of the Irish Community and Cultural Division, Irish Embassy to the UK). The discussion will be introduced by Peter Sloman and chaired by Barry Colfer of POLIS.

Following excellent first meetings, we would like to remind you about the new British Politics seminar series. Leading political figures will give their off-the-record insights into life in British politics. The seminars, which are co-organised by the Department of Politics and International Studies and Robinson College, will run throughout Lent Term 2017 and the intention is that they should become an annual fixture.

The next seminars are:

Friday 24th February

Rt Hon Mark Field MP, Vice-Chairman (International) of the Conservative Party will speak on the Conservatives’ international relations in light of Brexit and Trump

Friday 3rd March

Lord Lisvane, former Clerk of the House of Commons, will talk about parliamentary practices. A must for everyone who hopes to understand what MPs and peers are able to do as they seek to influence the Government over Brexit.

All the seminars will be held on Fridays at 5pm in the Linnett Room, Robinson College.

In addition, Baroness Wheatcroft will be giving the annual Antcliffe Lecture on Thursday 9th March at 5pm in Murray Edwards College. The topic of her Lecture will be 'Politics in the Age of Post-truth'. Please contact the POLIS Department for further details about that event.
