The significant decline in state and paramilitary violence in Northern Ireland has been part guided by politically motivated prisoners who have played a vital role in conflict transformation. Former prisoners have contributed to the development of alternative modes of thinking that have challenged once-dominant militarist ideologies. The actors involved in these discursive shifts

Prevent as a specific assemblage, responding to a novel problematisation of threat, it becomes possible to situate the policy as one that is integral to understanding the terrain of the UK’s contemporary identity politics. As the book has shown, this has resulted in two sets of practices, that, although they mobilise different forms of power, find coherence as a function that seeks to secure the future through transforming those identities deemed risky. The first set of practices emerge as a means of governing environments

Towards supranational governance in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice?
Christian Kaunert

institutional arrangements in these areas, are the expression of a political process attempting to construct such an ‘area’ for different political communities by ensuring their security from external security threats.

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

Nonetheless, CFSP institutionalisation has not resolved deficiencies in coherence and effectiveness, there are still problems with the institutionalisation of lessons learned, and coherence and effectiveness continue to be negatively affected by unintended consequences and path dependency, as well as intergovernmental, bureaucratic and local politics.

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
Bernadette C. Hayes and Ian McAllister

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
