Denis Halliday, former UN Assistant Secretary General and 2000-2001 Lang Professor for Issues of Social Change (in Peace and Conflict Studies) and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and founder of the Peace People, Mairead Corrigan Maguire, return to Ireland following the seizure of their humanitarian aid ship in international waters and their forced entry into Israel, from which they were deported.
