The Atlantic Council’s Europe Center is pleased to invite you to a virtual event, “A conversation with Tánaiste Micheál Martin, minister for foreign affairs and defense of Ireland.” This event will take place on Wednesday, February 8, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. ET / 19:00 hrs to 19:45 hrs CET.

As the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement approaches this year, Tánaiste Micheál Martin will reflect on the legacy of this important peace agreement and future opportunities for the island of Ireland, as well as the important role of the US-Ireland relationship in supporting the peace process. This year also marks fifty years of Ireland’s European Union membership, a period that has coincided with transformative change across the country’s social and economic landscape, and more recent challenges for the peace process after the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union. Transatlantic partnership is more important than ever as Europe and the United States confront a wide range of geopolitical threats, not least the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. 

Against this backdrop, Micheál Martin, Tánaiste (deputy prime minister) of Ireland joins the Atlantic Council in Washington to share how Dublin is navigating these challenges close to home, further afield, and in close partnership with the United States and the European Union. 

This discussion will take place on Zoom and will be broadcast on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. To receive the event information, please register using the button above. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to watch the event.
