Key figures from the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement gathered at Queen's on Tuesday 10 April 2018 for a public event to mark 20 years on from the signing of the peace agreement.
"The real heroes of the Agreement were the people of Northern Ireland and their political leaders.
"The people supported the effort to achieve the Agreement and afterwards they voted overwhelmingly to ratify it."
"The Good Friday Agreement is the work of genius that's applicable if you care at all about preserving democracy.
"Because it called for a real democracy, majority rule, minority rights, individual rights, the rule of law, the end of violence, shared political decision-making, shared economic benefits, shared special relations, maintained the relationship with the United Kingdom, expanded the relationship with the Irish republic and then let the future take its course."
