The Future of Environmental Governance in Northern Ireland

Monday 23 July 2018

Queen’s University Belfast School of Law, Moot Court Room, Main Site Tower, Belfast BT7 1NN

This workshop will discuss environmental governance in Northern Ireland in the context of the challenges and opportunities posed by Brexit.  The aim of the workshop will be to gather views on the proposed environmental governance arrangements as set out by UK Department for Environment and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).  Perspectives are sought from all interested stakeholders, including eNGOs, academics, policy and decision makers.

Each topic’s discussion will start with a short presentation to set the scene (5–10 min), then opening up to roundtable discussion among all participants. Key points will be teased out and summarized at the end of each session – including areas of agreement, differences of opinion and where matters are left unresolved.

Discussions will be under Chatham House Rules in order to facilitate open discussions, whereby no comments will be attributable to any individual. 

Discussions will inform the development of a sectoral position on environmental governance options for NI and the specific Defra consultation on environmental governance and principles (closing date: 2nd August), as well as the broader QUB Environment and Brexit research agenda. A workshop report will be created and made available online.

Please see here for further information on the use of information/confidentiality.

Attendance is free and open to all interested, but space is limited – please book tickets via the eventbrite link as soon as possible.
