Original landscapes, evergreen due to the mild climate, gentle, wooded hills and valleys, deserted sandy beaches as well as barren peat bogs and coasts torn apart by wind and water alternate with an overwhelming variety of testimonies to a cultural heritage spanning many millennia: Megalithic tombs, monasteries with high crosses and round towers from the heyday of early Irish Christianity, fortifications and manor houses from Celtic and Norman times as well as from the period of direct English occupation (...), but also beautiful parks and gardens.
Ireland is accessible above all through encounters with hospitable people full of infectious, enigmatic humour, whose clocks sometimes move even slower and whose history and stories are omnipresent in their legends, songs, festivals, dances and Gaelic place names.
But what does their political and economic future look like in this divided country on the edge of Europe? After a long boom phase, the Republic of Ireland went through a crisis, which has been followed by a new phase of comparatively high economic growth. We will also look at the question of what the chances of the Irish peace process are today.
The lecture evening will also serve as a presentation of an eight-day study trip by the European Education and Meeting Centre (EBZ) Ireland in cooperation with the adult education centres in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. Travel date: 16. - 23.09.2023
Eckhard Ladner, study and programme director of the European Education and Meeting Centre, is a social scientist, tour guide and Ireland specialist and has lived in Ireland for over 35 years.
