Power-Sharing and the Politics of Intercultural Dialogue

The Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, at Coventry University, is delighted to present the symposium, Arend Lijphart Power-Sharing and the Politics of Intercultural Dialogue.

Professor Arend Lijphart’s scholarly work on power-sharing and consociationalism revolutionised political science and had an enormous effect on the implementation of power-sharing institutions in Northern Ireland and other countries around the world.

Professor Lijphart will give a presentation on 'Reflections on half a century of consociationalism'. There will also be contributions by Professor Mike Hardy and  Professor Matt Qvortrup from CTPSR, Coventry.

The symposium will take place from 11.00 - 16.00 at the Coventry University main campus. For more information, or to book your free place please contact Charlotte Martin at
