How can we distinguish between “fake facts” where the Protocol is concerned and the truth? The Director of FactCheckNI will be on hand to help us do just that. What do our young people think about the Protocol? How do they see our future relationship with Europe? What advice do some of the many EU citizens who live here in Northern Ireland have for us? Are they thinking of returning home? Or do they see Northern Ireland as their home? Do they have divided loyalties? And how are we treating them?
What advice do some of Northern Ireland’s most successful businessmen and women have for the Province? What is the view from Dublin? We’ll also be hearing from some of our top academics, analysts, and journalists with unique insight into what is going on. And could a solution be found in eight counties which straddle the border, have successfully managed to work together, and receive support from the EU, the UK and the Irish government? Could that be a possible path for the future?
