The Mitchell Institute is excited to announce the next Virtual Fireside Chat.
Visiting Scholar Dr Roz Goldie will deliver a presentation titled ‘The Poppy and the Black Ribbon: Counteract Dealing with Workplace Disputes during the NI Conflict’.
Mediating sectarian disputes was dangerous work in the 1990s. People were intimidated out of jobs and homes, or shot – some fatally. The trade union anti-sectarian unit Counteract developed a robust and uncompromising mediation service which dealt with many of these. To this day the Poppy remains contentious, if less violently than in the last century.
Roz is a Visiting Scholar at the George J. Mitchell for Global Peace, Security and Justice. This presentation pulls from her book, A Dangerous Pursuit, which will be published in the late spring of 2021.
