(p.207) Enduring Problems: The Belfast Agreement and a Disagreed Belfast
The Long Road to Peace in Northern Ireland

Peter Shirlow

Colin Coulter


This chapter examines some of the limitations of the Belfast Agreement and highlights how the social reality of enduring segregation maintains ethno–sectarian relationship. Such relationships undermine the development of shared space. Territorial entrapment remains and is a forceful reminder that the political process may be advancing but not in the manner required to challenge the nature of spatial separation, and thus much of what constitutes identity formation.

Keywords:   Belfast Agreement, segregation, ethno–sectarian relationships, political process, identity formation
