BBC World Questions comes to Ireland - Registration Closed

As Europe grapples with the big issues of migration, the economy and security, BBC World Questions comes to Dublin on Wednesday 09 November. In an edition from The Printworks, Dublin Castle, Jonathan Dimbleby will chair the debate and invite members of the public to question a panel of politicians and thinkers on the big issues affecting Ireland and post-Brexit Europe. On the panel: Leo Varadkar, Minister for Social Protection and Teachta Dála for Dublin West; Mary Lou McDonald, Deputy Leader of Sinn Féin and Teachta Dála for Dublin Central; Conor Lenihan, former Teachta Dála for Dublin South-West and international businessman; and Dr JoAnne Mancini, Senior Lecturer in History at Maynooth University.

Britain and Northern Ireland are preparing for exit from the European Union. Ireland is the only EU country that shares a land border with part of the UK. BBC World Questions provides an opportunity to discuss how the relationship between the two countries and the rest of the continent may evolve in the future. What does this mean for the Good Friday Agreement which helped bring an end to violence in Northern Ireland? We can also expect questions on abortion in Ireland, where it remains largely prohibited under the country’s constitution, as well as the upcoming result of the Presidential elections in America.

Crucially, no one on the panel knows what will be asked until the night itself. Be part of the audience and have your say in a debate that will be heard around the world. Your question may be one of 10 selected for the members of the panel to answer.
