From backdoor to backstop: the Irish-British-European triangle
Friday 24 September 2021, 2.00pm to 2.50pm BST
This panel will look at the inter-relationship between the Irish Question, the British Problem and the European balance of power. For more than five hundred years, from the Reformation, through the Napoleonic period and the the great confrontations of the twentieth century, the relations between London and her rivals in Europe have fundamentally shaped the settlement on the island of Ireland. We will explore what that tension meant in the past and what it might portend for the future.
