‘The Northern Ireland Troubles in Britain: Impacts, Engagements, Legacies and Memories’ examines the impacts of the conflict on individual lives, political and social relationships, communities and culture in Britain. It also explores how British people, including its Irish communities, have responded to and engaged with the conflict.
Contributors include activists, victims, survivors and scholars from personal, political, and academic backgrounds.
Professor Graham Dawson, the University of Brighton’s Professor of Historical Cultural Studies, said: “The book aims to demonstrate that 'unfinished business' from the conflict persists unaddressed in Britain.
“It advocates the importance of acknowledging legacies, understanding histories and engaging with memories in the context of peace-building and reconciliation. By challenging the lack of serious public engagement in Britain with the peace process, and the widespread sense among people in Britain that ‘the Troubles are nothing to do with us and are better left alone’, it hopes to encourage further research and public debate.”
