the post-conflict process in Northern Ireland, victims must be allowed to begin to assert some level of control of the present. The Habermasian model of truth recovery that is outlined in this chapter arguably offers this opportunity, providing a mechanism by which victims, and wider society, can attempt to discern the veracity of accounts of the past, and ideally agree upon a consensually negotiated history that contributes towards long-term democratic stability and genuine reconciliation. Context Negotiating the transition from political violence to a ‘post

-conflict situation, ‘just as likely to be a way of perpetuating and recalibrating divisions, as [they are] likely to lead to reconciliation’ (O’Callaghan, 2016 ). Some of the individuals commemorated, however, raise more questions than others. In October 2018, a service for Thomas Begley, who died in the premature explosion of his own device on the Shankill Road on 23 October 1993, which killed 10 people and injured 57, was attended by 200 people, among whom were a number of senior local republicans and Sinn Féin representatives

Aspects of Trevor’s England
George O’Brien

to consider the events as ‘grotesque and inconsequential’12 overlooks the possibility that it is through their grotesquerie, their restless usurpation of checks and balances, that the events enact the difficulty but also the desirability of reconciling to each other the vagaries of human cupidity and malice. As Trevor’s oeuvre evolves, the drama of reconciliation – of saving at least some of his characters from themselves as well as the situation into which they haplessly have fallen – becomes at once more subtle and more pressing, lending to his later English

) This chapter explores post-conflict attitudes and behaviour of those former non-state combatants who have engaged in broader formations of social and political reconciliation and transformation through various post-prison and community initiatives. In so doing it examines how the influx of former prisoners into organisations such as Sinn Féin, the PUP and the UPRG has reshaped the political thinking of

German and British soldiers at the Armistice1 Alexander Watson Hostilities cease at 11.00 today official.2 The Armistice of 11 November 1918 was a watershed in twentiethcentury history. Although the Versailles Peace Treaty of June 1919 has received much closer scholarly attention, it was the November Armistice which halted the unprecedentedly bloody fighting of the First World War and played a crucial role in shaping both the form and reception of the final, ultimately flawed, peace agreement.3 The failure of reconciliation in Europe

definitive political commitments, substituting a family crisis and its reconciliation for the consideration of global questions. My view is that this substitution is actually a means of pursuing those questions in different ways through its deployment of ideological tropes which have been integral to the overlapping histories of imperialism and the Enlightenment, whose relationship will be the central theoretical preoccupation of this chapter. I am concerned therefore with the complex ways in which the legacies of British colonialism have served to legitimate a quite
