TransConflict is pleased to present information about EUROCLIO’s 2016 Annual Conference in Belfast, entitled ‘Reimagining Remembrance and Dealing with the Legacy of a Violent Past’.
TransConflict is pleased to showcase the work of Inside Out from Northern Ireland, a member of the Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation.
Recent violent activity from dissident republicans poses real threats to Northern Ireland - which is often held-up as an exemplary case study of building sustainable peace - yet why does it persist given that it is unlikely to establish a thirty-two county republic?
TransConflict is pleased to present a short film, entitled ‘Living in the Half Light’ , which explores the challenges of dual identity experienced by children and youth in Northern Ireland whose origins are from a different culture.
Along with substantive questions, both Serbia and Kosova continue to grapple with the spoiler problem which underscores – as the unfortunate examples of Ireland’s Michael Collins and Israel’s Yitzhak Rabin demonstrate – the dangers notables face if they prove willing to accept something less than total victory.
‘The Window in the Wall’ is a planned feature-length documentary filmabout the extraordinary stories of ordinary people, and their efforts to create windows in the physical and internal walls that divide them in Northern Ireland.
Elements of the Irish-English settlement may offer a model for how a Kosovar-Serbia deal might be made, including recognition that the creation of an ethnic state cannot proceed peacefully on the back of forcing an ethnic minority to join.
'Draw Down the Walls' is a cross-community project which uses art to engage people in interface communities to imagine what Belfast could be like without barriers, whether they are physical or not.
