Politics and Peace in Northern Ireland : Political Parties and the Implementation of the 1998 Agreement Paperback / softback
Politics and peace in Northern Ireland analyses the complex and contradictory process of implementing the Good Friday Agreement.
Using the lens of security dilemma theory, it begins with an original overview of the conflict, the Agreement and post-1998 politics.
The book then explores post-Agreement Northern Ireland through the eyes of each of the four main political parties, showing how they tried to shape the course of peace implementation, and how implementation, in turn, shaped the fates and fortunes of the parties. Drawing on extensive original research, this book explains the promise and limits of the Agreement.
It shows how and why the two sides' mutual insecurities repeatedly derailed peace implementation, and reflects on the likely direction of parties and politics in the future.
This clearly written and up-to-date book will be of interest to scholars and students of recent Northern Irish history, ethnic conflict and peace-making. -- .
