From Desecration to Reconciliation

During an interview for a piece of research currently doing on behalf of the Irish Churches’ Peace Project (ICPP), an interviewee referred to the usefulness of a paper on desecration during the conflict in Northern Ireland. This was a piece of research I carried out several years ago via the Institute for Conflict Research and which saw light of day in the NI Community Relations Council periodical Shared Space.

He didn’t know I wrote it – so just had to tell him afterwards!

Glad paper thought to be useful; though sad that symbolic hate crime is still prevalent!
