Abstract

Northern Ireland is a transitional society moving from conflict towards peace. While there have been numerous examples of community relations work in Northern Ireland, much of the learning has not been articulated within a youth work context. Drawing upon discussions with twenty youth work practitioners and conversations with young people, this paper identifies and describes some of the key practice issues for those delivering youth work in contested spaces.
