This Committee plays an important role in informing debate on key areas of mutual interest such as North/South economic co-operation.   The Committee works across a number of key areas, which include:

  • Reconciliation Issues - including Outreach to Disadvantaged Communities
  • Commemoration Issues - including consideration of significant anniversaries arising over the next decade. e.g. Ulster Covenant; 1916 etc.
  • North-South Co-Operation across Sectoral Areas - e.g. Health, Transport, Education, Agriculture, Tourism & Culture etc.
  •  Funding Programmes e.g. PEACE, Reconciliation Fund, International Fund forIreland; funding of Glencree Reconciliation Centre etc.

The Committee, in which MPs from Northern Ireland have speaking rights, offers an opportunity to foster better links and dialogue between parliamentarians from both sides of the border.
