Critical Engagement

Irish Republicanism, Memory Politics and Policing

Kevin Hearty

Liverpool University Press

  • The first study of post-GFA Irish republicanism that adopts a memory politics lens to frame current contestation
  • Groundbreaking interdisciplinary in-depth study of Irish republican engagement with post-Patten policing that draws from transitional justice, critical criminology and memory politics frameworks
  • Provides an original insight into the interplay between individual and collective memory in constituencies and former activists and combatants undergoing the process of transition
  • Benchmark study that departs from an intercommunal approach to contestation of the past to critique how the past is contested within rather than between ethno-nationalist collectives undergoing transition
