As outlined in New Decade, New Approach, the UK Government is committed to working alongside the restored Executive to mark the centenary of Northern Ireland in 2021 in a spirit of mutual respect, inclusiveness and reconciliation, in line with the principles for remembering.

We are committed to facilitating national recognition and international awareness of this significant anniversary, with opportunities to mark the centenary in NI, across the UK, across the island of Ireland and internationally.

We intend to use a cross-Whitehall, collaborative approach to support and deliver projects to mark the centenary. Further details on these projects will be available shortly.
