Summary
"Since the onset of the troubles in the late 1960s, people in Northern Ireland have been working together to bring about a peaceful, non-violent end to the conflict. In doing so, they have supported the transition to a post-conflict society in the wake of the ceasefires and the Good Friday Agreement. This collection is the first to examine the different forms of peace and reconciliation work that have taken place. It brings together an international group of scholars to examine initiatives such as integrated education, faith-based peacebuilding, cross-border co-operation and women's activism, as well as considering the impact that government policy and European funding have had upon the development of peace and reconciliation organizations. This unique collection of essays demonstrates the contribution that such initiatives have made to the peace process and the part that they can play in Northern Ireland's future."--Jacket
