A number of long-term conflict transformation funding programmes or tools have been operating in Northern Ireland and the Border Counties since 1986 under the guise of the International Fund for Ireland (IFI), the EU Special Support Programme for Peace and Reconciliation and the EU Programme for Peace and Reconciliation (Peace I, Peace II and Peace III), since 1994 and the

2 War narratives: making sense of conflict On 11 July 2018, an argument between then Italian Minister of Interiors, Matteo Salvini, and the former President of Italian NGO Emergency, Cecilia Strada, circulated through social media. Salvini suggested that the vast majority of migrants recently rescued in the Mediterranean were in fact people not entitled to protection, because they were not from countries at war. These are the nationalities of the immigrants who boarded the Italian Coast Guard vessel ‘Diciotti’, recovered by a previous vessel in Libyan waters

This book has highlighted the vastness and complexity of the conflict transformation field. While the Northern Ireland conflict is one of the most heavily researched conflicts in the world, research focusing on its conflict transformation process, particularly through social and economic development, is not readily available. Specifically, no attempt has

THIS BOOK began as an attempt to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It quickly evolved into a research project on political cartoons. Its journey from an international relations study of the Middle East conflict to a cartoon analysis of public opinion forced me across disciplinary divides that locate this work at the intersection of international relations, media

The problem of the status mixtus Members of the armed forces are not concerned with the manner in which a conflict begins, nor whether it is legal or illegal. So far as they are concerned, the law of armed conflict comes into operation and they must abide by it from the moment that hostilities begin and they are required to participate therein

A cartoon analysis of conflict

STUDYING POLITICAL cartoons has made me both more certain of the insight they offer to conflict research and more cautious when reading them. The controversy surrounding the Jyllands Posten cartoons exemplifies the ease with which a cartoon’s meaning can be misconstrued. A selective sample of offensive cartoons, combined with three forgeries, was used to substantiate

Conflict, media and displacement in the twenty-first century

Introduction: conflict, media and displacement in the twenty-first century When we embarked on the work that informs this book, the term ‘refugee crisis’ had only recently re-entered European debate. Since that time, considerable energies have been devoted to explaining and critiquing the framing of crisis and the events leading to unprecedented numbers of people in need moving across the globe. This project also reflects on this context where displaced populations meet anti-migrant anxieties, but we have attempted to reframe the discussion to unsettle what has

The language of crisis forms part of the amnesia of Europe. We feel it is a ‘crisis’ because 205 How media and conflicts make migrants of a wilful erasure and forgetting of the processes and histories that have led us to this point. Calling it a ‘European refugee crisis’ also ignores the fact that the nations which currently accept the most refugees are in fact outside of Europe; European countries accept

Much external interest in what has been achieved in Northern Ireland and in North-South relations has been in the ‘high politics’ of the settlement – Northern Ireland having moved from being a conflict resolution ‘pupil’ to becoming an exemplar for those trying to achieve peace elsewhere (Guelke, 2010 ; see
