Comparative Study Visit Series for Parliamentarians, Ireland, 17th July 2013 – 31st May 2014

This report details three high-level Comparative Study Visits to Ireland, organised by the Democratic Progress Institute. The aim of these visits was to bring delegates from each of Turkey’s main political parties to discuss the general topic of conflict resolution in the context of the Northern Ireland peace process along with the specific interests of each delegation. These small visits were designed to allow participants from each of the main political parties in Turkey to be able to speak frankly and openly with those who had been involved in the peace process in Northern Ireland. Each visit was facilitated with the kind assistance of the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation, and was hosted by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs.
