Devolution in practice: Overcoming the challenges

The devolution of policing and justice heralds a new era for the local justice system.  For the first time in 38 years a local Minister will have responsibility for policing and justice powers.  Now that devolution has finally taken place, this important conference will explore the strategic issues facing the newly devolved policing and justice system.

Following the long and difficult path towards the Hillsborough Agreement which made devolution possible, there could be a temptation to see the actual act of devolution, which took place on 12th April as the final stage in the process.  Whilst it may be the final part of the political process, it is in reality only the beginning of the hard work.  While the powers have been devolved, much remains to be done in understanding how the whole system of devolution will work in practice in Northern Ireland, and most importantly how the various organisations within the system will work together. 

Conference programme

This conference will examine many of these key issues, through an expert speaker panel comprised of key stakeholders from across the local policing and justice sectors including:

§        Alan Hunter, Chief Executive, Law Society of Northern Ireland

§        Jacqui Durkin, Head of Business Development & Services, NI Courts and Tribunals Service
