Please find the CFP for our Special Collection of essays on the conference theme here

April 2018 will see the 20th Anniversary of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement, the central protections of which are currently under threat from the Brexit negotiations, special elections and the RHI Scandal. This special issue will discuss the impact and legacy of this Agreement on social, political and cultural life in Northern Ireland. The Agreement has proven strangely resilient. It has suffered many challenges, from inside and out, for the last 20 years but at the time of writing remains enshrined in UK and Irish law.
