Transformation and Ongoing Conflict in Contemporary Belfast (BBC Radio Ulster)

20100131 Conflict Transformation - Sunday Sequence

On 20 January, the Institute of Governance at Queen’s University Belfast hosted a workshop organised by the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of St Andrew’s: “Transformation and Ongoing Conflict in Contemporary Belfast”.

These two themes — transformation and ongoing conflict — were explored among about half a dozen groups of 6-8 participants, during a morning session. Issues such as the definition of “transformation”, how it manifests itself and what our personal/professional experiences have been, does conflict still exist in Northern Ireland, and are we still a divided society.

Andrea Rea presented a concise piece of the workshop on BBC Radio Ulster programme, Sunday Sequence (hosted by William Crawley) (audio above). Interviewees included John Feenan (Community Foundation for Northern Ireland), Chris Brown (Transitional Justice Institute, University of Ulster), Audra Mitchell (Centre for Peace & Conflict Studies, University of St Andrews) (and her colleague, Mary-Catherine) and Allan Leonard (Northern Ireland Foundation).
