Film Screening: The Troubles with Brexit

Presented by the Bertelsman Foundation.

Join us November 25, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. for a screening of The Troubles with Brexit

After 40 years of conflict in Northern Ireland, the Good Friday agreement ushered in a period of relative peace and stability in the northwest corner of Europe. But the unintended consequences of the UK leaving the European Union have threatened to reignite a sectarian fire that many thought had been extinguished long ago. This film takes the audience on a journey to both sides of the Irish Sea to explore the social, political, and economic impact of Brexit on Northern Ireland.

A conversation will follow the screening featuring:
Brendan O’Leary, Lauder Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania
Siobhán Lyons, Executive Director, Citizen Diplomacy International
Moderated by Anthony Silberfeld, Director, Transatlantic Relations, Bertelsmann Foundation

Doors open at 6:00 p.m., film begins at 6:30 p.m.
