The Long Road to Peace in Northern Ireland

Harvey Cox


This chapter sees the ‘middle range’ leaders — those not involved in the highest level of constitutional negotiation — as ‘vital to the prospect of a transition from the politics of continuous confrontation to one of non–violent contest and adjustment’. It views the Good Friday Agreement as only the beginning and suggests that post–Agreement politics seem dominated by disputes over symbols and traditions because it involves a conflict does not end with a one–off ‘Peace’.

Keywords:   Good Friday Agreement, constitutional agreement, symbols, traditions
