Abstract

The book discusses the difficulty of achieving “social peace” in Northern Ireland, and argues that political agreement does not mean de facto social reconciliation. Violence has not disappeared, but has found new ways and actors through which to express itself. Facing a gradual fracture between political organizations and their respective communities, the peace process has been unable to build trust. The book thus argues that a decrease in inequalities and discrimination cannot be enough to reach reconciliation if local communities do not appropriate this goal. Local intercommunity dialogue must be complementary to the more general discussions on the province’s future.
