Contributions to the Social Peace Process
This chapter outlines the first stages of the conceptual framework for comparative analysis of religious peacebuilding, which is then applied to the Northern Irish case study. Categories of peacemaking discussed include active and passive, negative and positive, and political versus social peacemaking. It outlines a typology of active peacebuilding by the churches—ecumenical activity, mediation, cross community work, peace initiatives, anti-sectarianism, post conflict adjustment, and political dialogue. Those aspects which pertain to the social peace process are elaborated, with extensive examples and illustrative material from interviews.
