CCBS Conference

Testing the health of conditions for post-Brexit cooperation: The evolving social and political contexts

The overarching theme of this year’s conference is “Testing the health of conditions for post-Brexit cooperation: The evolving political and social contexts”, and (as in previous years) we will have a range of key decision and policy-makers as well as leading civil society representatives from across the island of Ireland, Great Britain and Europe, exploring how we can maintain and strengthen relations in the challenging context of Brexit.

The Conference Keynote speakers will be

•   Madeleine Alessandri | Permanent Secretary | Northern Ireland Office

•   Paul Narain | US Consul General to Northern Ireland

Panel discussions will focus on

•   the evolving political context(s) and how these may encourage (or not) cooperation and relations within and across these islands, as well as between these islands and the (rest of the) EU.

•   the evolving social context(s) and how these may encourage (or not) cooperation and relations within and across these islands, as well as between these islands and the (rest of the) EU.

•   the issue of designing policy and legislation that avoids creating obstacles to cross-border mobility (including cross-border working) and cooperation, and that exploits collaborative work approaches to address common challenges or to exploit opportunities.

SCoTENS Annual Conference - All in this together! Teacher Education and Social Justice - Thursday 21th October 2021

Education is meant to be the great leveller, the great equalizer that also enables all learners develop their capacities and excel. From a social justice perspective, there is agreement that full appreciation of differences in linguistic background, class, culture, gender, ability, and race should be taken into account in our education policies and practices. How do we understand and enact social justice so that we can ensure we are ‘all in this together’? This year’s SCoTENS conference offers a timely opportunity to critically consider this major theme.
