Ulster University is hosting workshops to facilitate women’s groups to participate in conversations about constitutional issues in Northern Ireland.  Our project is funded by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and the aim of each workshop is to have an inclusive conversation on the referendum provision in the 1998 Belfast Good Friday Agreement that takes account of pro-Irish unity, pro-UK union, undecided and alternative perspectives.

The researchers are Fidelma Ashe, Eilish Rooney and Joanna McMinn who are organising 10 workshops to make sure women’s voices are heard in public constitutional debates.  Workshops are held on Zoom and facilitated using adult and community education methods. Participants’ contributions are anonymised.

For more information on how to participate in the project email Dr. Fidelma Ashe (F.ashe@ulster.ac.uk).
