This chapter traces the downfall of the power-sharing and the coming about of the Anglo-Irish Agreement and its consequences. With the troubles in Northern Ireland continuing to challenge any resemblance of a cabinet in Northern Ireland that represented nationalist and unionist elements, the Anglo-Irish Agreement, an agreement between the United Kingdom and Ireland, was drafted to end the conflicts in Northern Ireland. The agreement had hidden objectives so that it hindered support for Sinn Fein, a member of the Northern Ireland Assembly, and it also improved security cooperation between the British and Irish governments. The chapter concludes with an assertion of its critical attitude towards the processes of negotiation and onward movement of the Anglo-Irish Agreement.
