A key question which underlies this book is this: why has the (relative) peace Northern Ireland enjoys not been accompanied by reconciliation? The political institutions established by the Belfast agreement of April 1998 have had a stop-start character, with delay in their establishment until December 1999, repeated suspensions and a prolonged collapse after October 2002. Their

Abstract only

This book arose from a Leverhulme Trust research project of the same title, conducted from 2006 to 2008, involving individual and group interviews with 147 republican and loyalist former prisoners and examination of the roles played by combatants in effecting political change.

logic of respect for human rights and democratic values contributing to the political and economic stability of current and prospective EU member states is irresistible. Yet, what is the European driving force in the promotion of human rights? And are the means employed to encourage countries aspiring for membership consistent with the EU’s internal standards for human rights protection? In the fight

in The security dimensions of EU enlargement

A common observation in comparative politics is that divisions within a society that cross-cut one another lead to moderation and compromise, while divisions that reinforce one another lead to extremism and conflict. This observation was first made when the stable, moderate, pluralist politics of the Scandinavian democracies was contrasted with the relatively unstable, divisive

of minorities which had enabled Kosovo’s separation from Serbia in the first place (Noutcheva 2009: 1073). The politics of Kosovo’s recognition point to the need to analyse the role of the EU on the evolution of the conflict in the context of the analytical challenges it poses. The case broadens our understandings of settlement and conflict resolution. Traditionally defined
