The Northern Ireland Experience of Conflict and Agreement

A model for export?

Robin Wilson

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides a close scrutiny of the Northern Ireland peace process, dissecting its flaws and showing why the particular circumstances that it involved do not necessarily travel well as an all embracing solution to conflicts worldwide Includes a comparative dimension, comparing the situation in Northern Ireland with other attempts to establish power-sharing arrangements after violent conflicts, in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia Offers a fresh perspective which shows clearly that the consociationalist theory is in relation to this conflict obsolete Uses in-depth primary research to show that received wisdom about the 1970s power-sharing experiment is in many ways misconceived Contains interviews with senior officials and political figures in London and Dublin, revealing a notable uneasiness about the legacy of the 1970s power-sharing arrangement
