Northern Ireland: Religion in War and Peace

September 3, 2013
This case study examines the complex and multifaceted role of religion in the conflict in Northern Ireland between Catholic nationalists and Protestant unionists. The core text of the case study looks at the struggle through the lens of five primary questions: What are the historical origins of the conflict in Northern Ireland? How did domestic forces drive the conflict and its negotiated resolution? How important were international religious and political forces? What role did socioeconomic factors play? How did religion intersect with these other factors in driving outcomes? Alongside this core text, the case study features a timeline of key events, a guide to relevant political, nongovernmental, and religious organizations, and a list of topical publications for further reading on the subject.
