This chapter presents an overview of developments in history education in Northern Ireland since 1968. It traces the innovative responses of the history curriculum to a society in conflict and emerging from conflict and particularly describes how a constructivist, enquiry focused approach has been applied to overcome the challenge of teaching history in an environment divided by contested identities.
