Professor Richard English, Director of the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security, and Justice at Queen’s University Belfast, hosts Andrew Heyn, UK Diplomat, for a live 'In Conversation' event.

He experienced at first hand the democratic reforms in Myanmar from 2010 onwards and the beginnings of the Rohingya crisis. He was in Hong Kong for the 2019 protest movement and the subsequent imposition of the new National Security Law by China in 2020. He served as Deputy British Ambassador in Dublin from 2005-09 covering the St Andrews Agreement.
This event forms Andrew's inaugural address as Honorary Professor of Practice at the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice at Queen's University.
