The book provides an explanation of how movements which use terrorism decline by drawing on social movement theories, using the case of Irish Republicanism as an example which can be applied to other movements. Given the focus of the book on the social level, a number of inter-related themes are touched upon. The first of which is the debate on whether disengagement or de-radicalisation are necessary to bring about a durable end to terrorism. Differently from other books, it is argued here that changing attitudes toward behaviour, rather than changing ideology, can constitute a form of de-radicalisation. It also shows how ideologies and social norms which might make attitudes toward terrorism seem appealing can be challenged in the long-term. Fundamental to this argument is that the disengagement of groups such as the Provisional IRA does not need to involve them renouncing support for violence totally as long as the disengagement process occurs at the societal level too. De-radicalisation of former combatants is important for the decline of movements as this can set norms against the next generation becoming involved in terrorism. One section of the book discusses how former combatants have sought to discourage young people from participating in armed violence by de-legitimising and de-glamourising it, and how this battle for the next generation is crucial for de-radicalising terrorist movements. Another section outlines the role which former combatants have played in preventing terrorism and political violence at the community level, and how the development of networks in Belfast helped to encourage further disengagement. The fundamental aim of the book is to provide theoretical and conceptual insights into how terrorism can not only come to an end, but can be prevented from emerging to be a significant threat again within a society. It shows how ending campaigns of terrorism are not solely the role of the government, but for a wide range of actors in society. This book will be of much interest to students of terrorism and political violence, social movement theory, British and Irish Politics, war and conflict studies, security studies and IR in general.

This book provides a comprehensive and original interpretation of the Northern Ireland conflict. It situates the conflict firmly in its Irish, British and wider international contexts, showing how the sharp conflicts of interest are generated by deep-set structures and relations within Britain and Ireland. The authors argue that only a systematic and determined policy on the part of the British and Irish governments to dismantle the system of relations that produces conflict can fulfill the potential of the peace process and allow an agreed political settlement to emerge.

This book investigates the ways in which the particular nature and character of the state can impact upon the effectiveness of counter-terrorism efforts, and on the trajectory of violent conflicts. Here, McConaghy not only analyses historical campaigns of terrorism and the response of states to them, but also highlights how factors such as emotion, intra-state cooperation, communication and competition have all served to shape conflicts in the past. This volume explains what the ramifications of these factors are for academics studying political violence, for state elites with counter-terrorism responsibility, and for individuals or organizations who use violence to achieve their political goals.

In the changed political landscape of Northern Ireland, where all major political parties with a nationalist agenda are now reconciled to the use of peaceful and constitutional means to achieve their objectives, this book presents a timely analysis of the constitutional nationalist tradition in Northern Ireland in the period leading up to the outbreak of the Troubles. The first book on constitutional nationalism to appear in over a decade, this new and incisive work based on extensive primary sources and existing secondary literature, maps the history of the campaigns of nationalist parties and organisations to redress the grievances of Northern Ireland's Catholics and bring partition to an end. It offers a critical reappraisal of these campaigns and it assesses the outcomes and consequences of the political strategies pursued by an array of nationalist parties and groups.
