Good Friday and the European Label Forum: what do they have in common?
Almost 20 years ago, on 10 April 1998, the British and Irish governments as well as most of Northern Ireland's political parties signed the Good Friday agreement that aimed to end decades of turmoil in the region (that year, the Easter weekend fell later in April). The agreement was approved in simultaneous referenda on both sides of the Irish border in May, and entered into force 1.5 years later. Almost 20 years later, the Irish matter is again on the agenda as part of the Brexit negotiations.
As Prime Minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, Alastair Campbell was part of Blair’s core team that conducted the negotiations that led to the Good Friday Agreement. He has been honoured by several Irish universities for his role in the peace process and 20 years later is a regular commentator in the public debate on Brexit.
FINAT is therefore proud to have Alastair Campbell as its opening keynote speaker at the European Label Forum 2018 in Dublin, from 6-8 June. If there is ONE appropriate occasion to register, it is THIS WEEK!!
