This one-day seminar at the University of Liverpool on Thursday, 26 March 2015 will focus on the nature of the Basque conflict and why it is still proving so difficult to resolve.
Dr Juan José Ibarretxe, former President of the Basque Autonomous Community (Agirre Center for Social and Political Studies) will provide the keynote speech.
