Lord Alderdice, a member of the UK House of Lords and former Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly gave an inspiring and wide-ranging talk on how water and transboundary environmental forces can be used for peace.
MEDRC Center Director Ciarán Ó Cuinn stated;
“We were honored to have Lord Alderdice join us in Muscat. He energized the audience with a lecture that presented his own experience in Northern Ireland and his insights on how issues like water and the environment can be used to support cooperation across borders. “
