Between Revenge and Reconciliation? 

Making peace on the British-Irish ethnic frontier.

 

Abstract:

Frank Wright's thesis was that the north of Ireland was an ethnic
frontier: the decay of a complex pattern of Empire which left neither a
simple settlement nor an elite colony but a much more challenging
interaction of peoples. The challenge of the ethnic frontier is not the
irreconcilable differences of religion or identity, but the violence and
antagonism which have shaped relationships. In an ethnic frontier,
violence may seem justified as a means to avenge past wrongs but such
actions far from generating justice set in train an escalating cycle of
revenge.

The critical question underlying Agreement in the north of Ireland is
'how far has agreement generated new relationships or to what degree has
it merely contained violence on a new balance? This lecture will revisit
both Wright's thesis on the ethnic frontier, the comparative
opportunities and challenges facing Northern Ireland in relation to
other divided settings and the prospects for change.
