Deconstructing dominant narratives of peace: LGBTQ perspectives on conflict transformation in Northern Ireland

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The paper discusses findings from an AHRC funded project titled LGBTQ Visions of peace in a Society Emerging from Conflict. In ways, this was a complex project that combined methodologies in Arts and Social Science, but its central aim was very simple. The creation of visions of peace in societies emerging from conflict becomes dominated by the powerful groups that brokered the peace. Working with a range of NGOs the project aimed to facilitate the participation of LGBTQ people in developing and disseminating alternative visions of peace. As such, the project located LGBTQ people as agents of social change within Northern Ireland.
