As political dissent rattles Stormont, we are reminded that peace processes are just that: processes.  On Sept. 29, 2015, the CRCC partnered with the Capsersen School of Graduate Studies – Irish Studies program for a brown bag lunch talk on the current situation in northern Ireland. Our discussion was led by Irish Studies experts, Dr. Niamh Hamill, Prof. Caoimhin da Barra, and Associate Dean Bill Rogers.
