Dr. Stephen Farry is Deputy Leader of Alliance. He has represented North Down since 1993, as Councillor (serving as Mayor), as MLA until 2019 and now as the MP for North Down.
Minister for Employment and Learning between 2011-2016, he reformed universities and colleges, while promoting Northern Ireland abroad and creating investment across the community.
One of Northern Ireland’s leading voices in fighting Brexit, Stephen has been at the forefront advocating for a People’s Vote and to remain within the EU, meeting with UK Prime Ministers and the Government, Michel Barnier and the EU, as well as many others.
This event is part of a series on Peacebuilding in the Wake of Brexit. This series focuses on the North of/Northern Ireland during a time of great political and economic shifts. Various perspectives from community leaders, mostly from border counties or towns, highlight how recent developments affect everyday people as well as political possibilities. Interwoven with these perspectives are discussions with institutional figures who speak to more macro-level effects of Brexit and other sources of uncertainty on peacebuilding in Ireland and the UK.
