Life in a religious subculture after the Agreement
Gladys Ganiel and Claire Mitchell

what Ganiel and Jones ( 2012 ) call ‘Protestant civil religion’, informing the ‘political assumptions and social mores of most unionists’. Numerous studies have underlined evangelicalism’s political and social importance before and during the Troubles (Bruce, 2007 ; Ganiel, 2008 ; Mitchel, 2003 ). While the Reverend Ian Paisley, founder of the Democratic Unionist Party and

The interview testimony in this book points to a range of influences that, to a greater or lesser extent, informed the structure, trajectory and outcomes of the Northern Ireland peace process. Central to reaching the Good Friday Agreement of 1998 was intense and tenacious engagement from both the British and Irish Governments, along with the efforts of those political parties

in eight years to recover the authority of the state (Yarce, 2005b: 10A). For decades, San José de Apartadó has suffered violence from different armed actors, including guerrillas, paramilitaries and the army. In March 1997, after an intense political discussion, more than five hundred people decided to create a neutral territory in which none of the armed groups, including the army, would

Duncan Morrow

Stating the obvious sometimes has the important effect of reminding us of home truths: the North of Ireland suffers from an underlying crisis of legitimacy and political instability which make its problems enormously difficult to resolve. Though the current situation may be less bleak than the picture drawn in the quote that opens chapter 1

new Agreement to propose a wide range of specific and detailed reforms. With the advent of the Anglo-Irish Agreement, we had to ensure that we had persuasive arguments in all the areas under discussion and to develop issues for in-depth handling with the British through the new machinery.

National decapitations, as Robert Conquest, Timothy Snyder, the Memorial Group of historians in Russia, and the Instytut Pamie˛ci Narodowej (IPN, Institute of National Remembrance) historians in Poland argue, destroy whole societies and nations. An eliticide, when prolonged and ruthless, endangers social, political and moral order and undermines the capacity

, this has illuminated the analytical tools necessary to rethinking the DSP in an active voice. In this chapter, I want to pursue a detailed analysis of how the DSP constructs and produces political identities in a way that reproduces political violence. This task already assumes that identities can be constructed and produced in in/security discourses. This difference between construction and

Bernadette C. Hayes and Ian McAllister

Competing identities within nation states are commonplace in the modern world. Only about 1 in 10 of today’s nation states is ethnically homogeneous (Haymes, 1997 ), leaving considerable scope for ethnic political conflict. Since 1990, ethnonationalist conflict has been particularly intense in the postcommunist states of eastern Europe and central Asia, where ethnic divisions have provided an

European integration as a system of conflict resolution in the Franco-German relationship (1950–63)
Boyka Stefanova

Franco-German relationship of the 1950s. The process of Franco-German reconciliation is critically important for ordering the history of European integration. It offers important insights into the formative stages of the European construction and its importance relative to other designs of international organisation. It also informs much of the contemporary understandings of the political relevance of

Lee Jarvis and Tim Legrand

to issues around citizenship or democratic politics: the kinds of concern, as we saw in Chapter 3 , raised within much of the academic literature in this area. Importantly, and in spite of often-significant political and normative differences between the staunchest and most cautious contributions to these debates, we encounter a recurring and shared articulation of the importance of parliamentary responsibility to something ; whether national security, human security, multiculturalism, executive accountability, civil rights, or beyond.
