About The Event

For our first coffee and discussion meeting of 2021 we will be joined by long time friend of the Council and former British diplomat, Owen Traylor, to delve into the implications of the December 24, 2020 Brexit Agreement. Owen will offer a short overview of the agreement, take your questions and hear your ideas on what this 11th hour deal will mean for the UK, the EU, Ireland, and a host of other interesting issues!

More about Owen:

Owen Traylor is a 31-year veteran of the British Foreign Service, giving him wide experience of international negotiation, conflict management and resolution, and peace processes. Membership of a Cabinet Office Committee on Northern Ireland in the run-up to the Good Friday Agreement gave him his first policy-making role in conflict resolution, while his final posting in Tel Aviv gave him first-hand experience of the Israel/Palestine conflict. In the latter stages of his diplomatic career he focused on the issues of counter-terrorism and counter-proliferation of WMD, and after leaving government service, he has continued this focus in the academic arena. He was Diplomat in Residence at Earlham College, Indiana, USA from 2009-11, and Diplomat in Residence at the University of Kent in 2015, among other teaching and research appointments. He divides his time between Japan, the US and the UK. He has a law degree from the University of Cambridge.

Remember, this virtual event is strictly B.Y.O.C. (bring your own coffee)! Looking forward to seeing you there.
