Irish president Michael D Higgins will deliver the sixth annual Harri Holkeri lecture at Queen's University Belfast.

The lecture series recognises and celebrates the contribution to the Northern Ireland peace process of the late Finnish Prime Minister Harri Holkeri.

It is organised by the Senator George J Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice.

The institute's acting director Professor John Brewer said: "The Annual Harri Holkeri Lecture is one of the significant events in the calendar of the Senator George J Mitchell Institute and there is no public figure more prominent this year to grace the lecture than President Higgins."
