This chapter illustrates the role that politically motivated former prisoners have played in the promotion of peace. It also investigates the process of early release and reintegration at a ‘critical juncture’ in the trajectory towards conflict transformation. The process of release and reintegration of politically motivated former prisoners (PMFPs) has been a key battleground. They have fought to get news of their work beyond the confines of neighbourhood papers with many of their achievements and positive contributions remaining hidden from public attention. The work of the PMFP projects is examined in detail. The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland (CFNI) and the Prisoner to Peace Consortium have plans to assist in the roll out of the resource to local schools.
