The Long Road to Peace in Northern Ireland: Peace Lectures from the Institute of Irish Studies at Liverpool University

Synopsis

With contributions from Senator George J. Mitchell, Sir David Goodall, Sir George Quigley, Lord Owen and Niall O�2Dowd among others, The Long Road to Peace in Northern Ireland shows how the drive for peace in Ireland has evolved, culminating in the Good Friday Agreement. A recurrent theme relates to the nature of peacemaking as a process rather than an event signaled by the signing of an agreement. The significant role of "third party" diplomacy is touched on by many contributors, as is the need for pragmatism, compromise, and a recognition that it is those people at the polar extremes of any dispute that have to be drawn in if a lasting agreement is to be achieved.
