The Institute for Conflict Research is a local charity working internationally on research, training and community development programmes addressing the impact and legacy of conflict, identity and social exclusion. Using the arts as a primary methodology, their programmes support participants as they build resilience, recovery and reconciliation.

Ian Duhig has written seven books of poetry; his work has been shortlisted for the Roehampton, Forward Best Collection and TS Eliot Prizes. A former homelessness worker, Duhig still works with socially excluded and immigrant groups, recently editing ‘Any Change: Poetry in a Hostile Environment’, an anthology of work from Leeds’ different immigrant communities.

Professor Pól Ó Dochartaigh is Registrar and Deputy President of NUI Galway, and a former President of the Association for German Studies in Great Britain and Ireland. He has worked on the legacy of the Holocaust, the German involvement in Celtic Studies and, more recently, on Jews in Irish literature and history.
