In 1998 the Good Friday Agreement (GFA) was widely hailed as a major breakthrough in the search for an end to the conflict in Northern Ireland. Now, eight years after its ratification by referenda on both sides of the border, the GFA presents a highly problematical history and a less than certain future.
Papers examining the following are particularly welcome:
• The changing political and electoral landscape of Northern Ireland since 1998.
• The development of attitudes towards the GFA amongst unionists, nationalists, republicans and loyalists.
• The record of the Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive.
• The prospects for devolved government in Northern Ireland.
• The impact of the media on the perception of the GFA.
• The role of the British and Irish governments.
• The international dimension.
• The future of the peace process.
• The peace process in a comparative context.
Titles and an abstract of not more than 300 words should be sent to Dr Eamonn O’Kane (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Dr Christopher Norton (C.Norton@wlv.ac.uk) by 31st January 2007.
