About the Speaker:
As a politician for over 30 years ‒ as a Belfast City Councillor, a member of the Northern Ireland regional parliament and as twice a Minister in its government ‒ Alex Attwood has been centrally involved in multiple negotiations to bring about new politics in Ireland and in its delivery. His work has included: security sector reform, power sharing structures and practice, transitional justice and the legacy of conflict, the primacy of democracy and inclusive dialogue, human rights and equality requirements, reconciliation and social cohesion, good governance and strong oversight. He has worked with people from many countries including Sierra Leone, Moldova/Transnistria and the Lebanon, to share the experience of Northern Ireland in moving from violence to peace.
