From 1912 to 1920-21, Ireland experienced major political and social change, including the creation of two new political jurisdictions on either side of an uncertain border line.

This panel reflects on the political and social developments of the 1910s, culminating in the creation of Northern Ireland and the Irish Free State, and the partition of the island reflecting these constitutional changes. The second panel discusses the legacy of partition and what this means for Northern Ireland today.

This conference was part of a programme of events in conjunction with the Tower Museum's exhibition 'Dividing Ireland - The Origins, Impact and Legacy of Partition'. Speakers at the conference include Susan McKay, Dr. Margaret Ward, Dr. Robert Lynch, Dr. Myrtle Hill, Dr. Johanne Devlin-Trew, Prof. Brendan O’Leary, and Dr. John Regan.
