(p.295) Chapter 14 Globalization, European Integration, and the Northern Ireland Conflict
Minority Nationalism and the Changing International Order

John McGarry (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Examines the impact of globalization and EU integration on the Northern Ireland conflict and its resolution. While they have not diluted the identities of opposing factions, or the intensity of their political agendas, they have greatly increased the opportunities for effective diplomacy on the part of national government. The Anglo‐Irish cooperation that ultimately produced the Good Friday Agreement may have been made easier as a result of sovereignty‐pooling and intergovernmental cooperation within the EU, but it was also due to a slow recognition by the UK government that the conflict could not be managed within the traditional state system. Globalization complemented these factors.

Keywords:   European Union, globalization, Good Friday Agreement, Ireland, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
