Abstract

In Northern Ireland, in spite of a relatively efficient peace process implemented at the institutional and political levels, recurrent episodes of physical and symbolic violence still happen at urban interfaces between Protestant/Unionist and Catholic/nationalist neighbourhoods, which are one of the few places where the working-class members of the two communities can meet. After a brief history of interfaces in Northern Ireland, this chapter aims to identify the various modes of management of inter-community violence in Northern Ireland, by looking specifically at violence happening at interface areas and during parades, and by contrasting the cases of the two main cities of Northern Ireland: Belfast and (London)Derry.
