Lecture reflecting upon Ireland's membership of the UN since 1955.

In conjunction with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Academy's Documents on Irish Foreign Policy series has organised an exhibition 'UN60' reflecting upon Ireland's membership of the UN from 1955. The Academy Library is proud to host this exhibition from 5 to 15 January 2016 and to present a lecture by Dr Michael Kennedy, Executive Editor, DIFP, in which he will explore Ireland's roll at the UN General Assembly in the late 1950s, early participation in peacekeeping, and the ways in which membership of the UN has shaped Ireland's foreign policy.

This lecture is accompanied by an exhibition ‘UN60:  Éire ag na Náisiúin Aontaithe / Ireland at the United Nations, 1955-2015’.
