Global Irish Civic Forum
An initiative of the Irish Government to help strengthen ties between Ireland and the diaspora.
The Global Irish Civic Forum is an initiative of the Irish Government to engage with the Irish diaspora from around the world.
Each forum helps strengthen ties between Ireland and the diaspora. It promotes discussion around issues of concern and interest to the global Irish community.
On 20-21 April 2023, invited representatives of organisations working with Irish diaspora communities will come together in Dublin Castle.
This year's forum is our third, with the last taking place in 2017.
2023 sees representatives of the global Irish family “Together Again – Le Chéile Arís”.
A diverse range of groups and individuals will be taking part, to share a range of views and experiences. Panel discussions, break-out sessions, and ample networking opportunities will encourage dynamic, open conversation.
It also provides an opportunity to renew old friendships and make new connections.
Reflecting on the past few years, we will explore our collective response to the challenges faced. Looking to the future, as a global community we bring a renewed sense of optimism and solidarity.
