Council for Spanish-Irish Historical Studies, (‘Consejo Hispano Irlandés de Estudios Históricos’, www.irishinspain.es). This Council was formed in 2011 as a result of the signing of a declaration by representatives of The Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas or CSIC), the Royal Academy of History (Real Academia de la Historia), and the Royal Irish Academy. In March 2011, the President of the Irish Republic underlined the importance of this scholarly venture:
“It is important that joint research on our shared historical legacy should continue and so I am delighted that a formal Declaration is being signed this week by the Royal Irish Academy, the Real Academia de la Historia and the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas on the establishment of a Council for Spanish-Irish Historical Studies (Zarzuela). It is deeply moving to know in such fascinating detail of the lives of the Irish in Spain many centuries ago. Their hearts and hands made solid bonds of friendship and kinship between Ireland and Spain. We build on those today and as we do we acknowledge the debt we owe to the scholars who continue the historical research that allows us not just to understand our past better, but allows us to understand our very selves better. For that reason, I particularly welcome the formal Declaration concerning the establishment of a "Council of Spanish-Irish Historical Studies" that is being signed in Madrid this week between representatives of the Royal Irish Academy, the Real Academia de la Historia and the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas. This Declaration affirms the strong commitment to maintain and develop future cooperation and provide a more effective advisory structure for the coordination and promotion of collaborative research projects (Universidad de Alcalá).
"In recognition of the major historical research projects, publications, databases, conferences and symposia that have been organized and conducted over the past fifteen years by Spanish and Irish scholars and academic institutions, institutionally and individually, concerning the archaeological, historical and cultural studies of the centuries-old relationships between Ireland and Spain and the Iberian-Atlantic World, it is proposed by the said scholars and the institutions that they represent, to establish The Council for Hispano-Hibernian Historical Studies, in order to continue this highly significant and valuable work that enhances the friendship and understanding between Ireland and Spain and supports the bi-lateral political, diplomatic, cultural, economic and humanitarian relations between the two countries”.
