2008 Irish Diaspora Forum at UCD

This event, hosted through the UCD John Hume Institute for Global Irish Studies, offers global perspectives on the questions of Ireland. The programme includes expert debate on international politics, global economy, philanthropy and Irish culture. The forum will also be addressed by President of Ireland, Mary McAleese.

The forum intends to explore and stimulate discussion on issues that are of significance to people in Ireland and to people elsewhere who identify with Ireland and with Irishness, an estimated 80 million people world wide.

Discussion will focus on four themes: 

  • New World Order? Change and the US administration
  • After the Deluge, Ireland and the Global Economy
  • Giving Back- Can philanthropy shape the future? 
  • Irish Culture- A Global Bridge?

Panels of guest speakers including Bruce Morrison, Former Member US House of Representatives; Gara LaMarche, CEO Atlantic Philanthropies; and film producer Lenny Abrahamson will address specific topics, but the day is intended to be a forum and discussion and debate from other participants will be welcome.
