Abstract

This chapter outlines the way in which reconciliation in Northern Ireland has been promoted through some civil society groups and actors. It draws on experiences since 1965 with the practice, research and policies associated with trust building and reconciliation. The new policy and strategic framework under the banner of Good Relations has the potential to connect the work of local government and community organizations, regional bodies and Government through the promotion of improved community relations across traditional divides. This means that citizens committed to reconciliation – whether out of civic duty, a moral imperative, a faith perspective or a desire for a more interdependent world – should now be supported by the activities of public institutions, civil servants and community agencies.
