The International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE) and the UNESCO Centre at the University of Ulster request the pleasure of your company at a celebration of
The HECUA 'Democracy and Social Change in Northern Ireland' Programme
On Friday 9th May 2014 at 3pm in Martha Magee's (MD008)
Magee Campus, University of Ulster
For the last decade the HECUA 'Democracy and Social Change in Northern Ireland' Programme has provided an opportunity for students from the United States to live, work and study in Northern Ireland, examining the conflict from multiple perspectives and analysing Northern Ireland's resources for building an inclusive and sustainable democracy.
HECUA is an organisation of 17 United States Liberal Arts Colleges dedicated to education for social justice who partner with the University of Ulster in delivering the programme. The Programme is in its first year within a new home at INCORE, after spending eleven successful years within the UNESCO Centre at the University.
This event is an opportunity for an invited audience of community representatives, academics and policy makers to hear reflections on learning experiences from some students, and also to celebrate the success of the Programme in developing understandings of the Northern Ireland conflict on both sides of the Atlantic. Gregory S. Burton, United States Consul General in Northern Ireland
Jenny Keyser, Executive Director of HECUA
