This chapter provides an outline description of the three funding programmes in terms of their background, their management and administrative structures and the types of activities they funded. Of the three conflict transformation programmes (tools) which Northern Ireland and the Border Counties have benefited from, two of them, the IFI and the Peace programmes, were specifically tailored for the region. Together with the INTERREG I, II and III(A) programmes, they have directly contributed over €3.25billion to the region since 1986. While intricate in their make-up, they illustrate a fine line between standard socioeconomic activities and those aimed at transforming conflict. Effectively analysing their impact on the region’s conflict transformation process necessitates comprehending their complex backgrounds, administrative structures and activities, a complexity which largely increased rather than decreased as they progressed.
