This chapter maps the work of AfC from the summer of 2008 until December 2016, covering the period when the organization became re-activated (Walker, this volume) and up until the focus shifted to Westminster following the suspension of the NI Assembly (NIA) in January 2017 (Pierson, this volume; Campbell, this volume). It charts how and why the organization renewed its focus in 2008; considers how it developed during the following decade, the challenges and barriers faced and its key achievements. It reflects on the political landscape during this period, which Pierson details in her chapter, as well as the public policy agenda. We document the ally-building across a number of sectors and the intersectional nature of the actions and programmes that were delivered by AfC.
