Religion, Civil Society, and Peace in Northern Ireland

John D. Brewer, Gareth I. Higgins, and Francis Teeney

  • First book-length study of the role of the churches in Northern Ireland's peace process
  • Based on four years in-depth qualitative interviewing with over 50 people, looking at the views of a cross section of politicians, civil society activists, and paramilitary members.
  • Corrects the tendency in current literature to neglect or deny the role of the churches
  • Presents a challenging re-evaluation of drivers behind the peace process, the nature of civil society peacebuilding, and the post-conflict reconstruction role of the churches
  • Develops a conceptual framework that facilitates cross-national comparisons
