Our Future Together
The Northern Ireland Foundation seeks to animate the discussion on Northern Ireland’s community relations policy as a pledged outcome of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. This includes promoting the work of others, in the goal of a cohesive Northern Ireland society.
You can review the state of current government policy in a full chronology.
We also invite you to join our list of organisations undertaking positive action and programmes.
Forum for Cities in Transition
The Forum for Cities in Transition is an international network of mayors, councillors, municipal officials, business people, and representatives of the voluntary and community sector.
The Forum works on the principle that cities that are in conflict or have emerged from conflict are in the best position to help other cities in the same situation.
The Forum for Cities in Transition is an initiative of the John Joseph Moakley Chair at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The Secretariat is shared by the Northern Ireland Foundation and the Moakley Chair.

The Ulster Business School at the University of Ulster is the leading provider, for over 30 years, of university accredited management education and training programmes in Northern Ireland. The Northern Ireland Foundation is a partner of its Advanced Diploma in Civic Leadership and Community Planning course.
The first of its type in Northern Ireland, this programme has been developed to meet the need for a practical, accredited programme for key players involved in developing and implementing community planning.
The course is aimed at elected members and officers in district council municipalities; officers in statutory agencies; and representatives from the voluntary and community sector.
The programme will provide participants with knowledge and understanding of the principles and practices of community planning and effective leadership to enable them to make a strategic contribution to attaining organisational objectives and improved performance.
