Overview

Byrne's study explores the participants' images of economic assistance to explain the importance of tailoring economic assistance to the distinctive social needs of the targeted communities, and how third parties must consider and include local perspectives in their attempts to build the peace. This study explains the importance of economic and social development in promoting cross-community contact as well as within single-identity communities prior to encouraging economic exchange between communities, and the need for a multi-track intervention approach to transform the conflict in Northern Ireland. The book makes an important contribution to our understanding of how economic assistance impacts a divided society with a history of protracted violence and provides important perspectives of what could be called the "peace through development" idea. However, it is important to note that economic aid to promote a change in Northern Ireland's economic well-being is also tied into the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which has, at its center, a comprehensive range of new political power-sharing institutions.
