The Transatlantic Relationship in the 21st Century: An Irish Perspective
Ambassador Geraldine Byrne Nason provides her perspective on the future of the relationship between Ireland and the United States.
About This Event
President Joe Biden’s recent visit to Ireland underscored the historically close relationship and deep connections between Washington and Dublin. Biden’s visit also marked the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, a deal that ended 30 years of conflict in Northern Ireland and continues to preserve peace to this day. Yet how will the next generation of leaders preserve this peace, especially after Brexit? And how will the Ireland-United States relationship continue to shape transatlantic ties in the 21st century? Join Ambassador Geraldine Byrne Nason at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs for a timely discussion on the state of Ireland-US relations.
