(p.51) Chapter 2 From Resistance Community to Community Politics
The New Politics of Sinn Féin

The chapter aims to explain the origins and processes of the evolution of the Provisional and Republican ideology. Various factors such as pop culture, mass media, the church, intergenerational ties, folklore, lobbying groups, localism, institutionalization, sense of community politics, and social identity, as well as other soft powers that influenced the movement and development of the said ideologies, are discussed in relation to the effects of decentralization of authority on the locale through electoral representation. The chapter also discusses the role of the British state and the emergence of newer forms of democracy and the New Left over the said paradigm evolution. Other forces in the dynamics and shaping of the Republican politics in the community are also analysed, with some statements from critics and Unionists.

Keywords:   community politics, Republicanism, Republican ideology, democracy, decentralization, institutionalization, electoral representation, Northern Ireland
