Abstract

The pilot project “Divided We Stand” was completed in Northern Ireland in 2011, funded by the Community Relations Council and implemented by the Nerve Centre, Derry. Arising from a perception that despite relative peace in Northern Ireland, fundamental divisions still exist, the project involved examining the movement of 16 to 17 year old students, some from the Catholic community and others from the Protestant community. The project used GPS devices to track student movements over a one week period. This paper examines the views of all the students and their perception of the impact of segregation on their lives. It focuses on the results from just two schools from the same city to examine how the technology was used by 12 learners and evaluates the results. Differences in movement patterns in the two groups are noted and a worrying lack of contact is identified.
