Northern Ireland : from multi-phased conflict to multi-levelled settlement
|Title:||Northern Ireland : from multi-phased conflict to multi-levelled settlement||Authors:||Todd, Jennifer||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/2594||Date:||Jul-2009||Abstract:||The origins of the Northern Ireland conflict fall into three temporally distinct phases, each of which creates a particular socio-structural context that defines a set of protagonists with conflicting interests, more or less defined aims, and a given temporality of conflict. Each is superimposed on the previous phases, further defining and intensifying conflict. The result is a multi-levelled conflict and a multiplicity of aims for protagonists. This provides a useful frame for explanation of the difficulties of negotiating and of implementing an agreed settlement and for assessment of the successes and failures of the 1998 agreement.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Routledge / Taylor & Francis||Copyright (published version):||2009 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC||Keywords:||Conflict resolution;Conflict;Northern Ireland;Historical patterns;Colonialism;Nationalism||Subject LCSH:||Social conflict--Northern Ireland--History
