Transformation and Ongoing Conflict in Contemporary Belfast
(BBC Radio Ulster)
31 January 2010

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 discussion on seminar on conflict transformation, on BBC Radio Ulster programme, Sunday Sequence. Interviewees included John FEENAN, Chris BROWN, Audra MITCHELL, and Allan LEONARD. Institute of Governance, Queen’s University Belfast.
