Edward M. Kennedy Oral History Project: Peace and Reconciliation in Northern Ireland




panel members OHP

The Institute hosted its first public program following the release of the Edward M. Kennedy Oral History Project in September 2015. Given the rich content on Irish affairs within the Oral History Project, namely the peace and reconciliation process in Northern Ireland, the topic was a fitting choice. Former Senate Majority Leader and U.S. Special Envoy to Northern Ireland George Mitchell will deliver the keynote address. Kelly O'Donnell, Capitol Hill Correspondent for NBC News, will moderate the discussion to follow with Senator Mitchell, Ambassador Nancy Soderberg, Mr. Niall O'Dowd, Congressman Peter King (R-NY), and Congressman Richard Neal (D-MA).
