This event will be moderated by Mark Bevir, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for British Studies at U.C. Berkeley, and Colum Hatchell, Vice Consul of the Consulate General of Ireland in San Francisco. It will largely consist of discussion, conversation, questions, and speculations.
