|Title:||Ireland's Ethno-Religious Conflicts: Path Dependence and its Legacies||Authors:||Ruane, Joseph||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7715||Date:||Dec-2012||Abstract:||This paper asks why Catholic-Protestant conflict has been so long- lasting in Ireland, and to what extent the Good Friday Agreement deals with the remaining conditions of conflict. It proposes an explanation for the persistence of conflict over the long term and in the two parts of Ireland since partition. It is offered as a tribute in a different disciplinary register to Professor W J Smyth, whose historical geography of the Irish longue durée has fascinated and challenged me for more than three decades. More personally, it is an expression of thanks for an equal number of years of collegiality and friendship.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Irish Geography Publications||Copyright (published version):||2012 the Author||Keywords:||Northern Ireland;Republic of Ireland;Good Friday Agreement;Path dependence;Longue durée||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Duffy, P.J. and Noaln, W.
