On the 1st-2nd of July, The Mary Robinson Centre hosted our International Symposium 2016, The Sustainable Development Goals: Equality, Human Rights, Peace, in conjunction with the Centre for Global Women's Studies, NUI Galway at the Great National Hotel Ballina. The event was a fantastic success, with speakers and delegates who have particular interests in promoting equality, human rights and peace converging in Ballina from all over the world to learn from each other.
We will be sharing more information about this fantastic event over the coming weeks and months, but today we wanted to draw your attention to this article in the Irish Times below, written by Paul Gillespie, the chair of our opening plenary session. To all those who joined us at the event, thank you for making it such a resounding success!
