Course Description: 
 
1How can communities with a recent history of violence live together peacefully? This course will examine the difficult yet inspiring Northern Ireland peace process through the lives of its participants. We will explore the challenges and potential of grassroots peace building, with special attention to issues of identity, culture, and memory as challenges and the principles of compromise, forgiveness, mercy, justice, and peace as potential. An integral part of the course will be meetings with representatives of the main political parties of Northern Ireland, former members of paramilitary organizations, academic experts, police officers, members of inter-community organizations, and victims of violence. Overnight destinations include Derry, Belfast, Ballycastle in Northern Ireland (Great Britain) and  Dublin and Galway (Ireland).
