Paramilitary Imprisonment in Northern Ireland

Kieran McEvoy

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents some final remarks on the notion of prisons as important spaces in the construction of collective memory. It argues that prisons in a conflict are particularly politically and ideologically charged sites. They define elements of the symbolic landscape of struggle. Such a view is arguably all the more relevant in the context of a ‘low intensity conflict’, where the absence of major military encounters and the hit and run tactics of both paramilitary and state protagonists render the battlelines harder to discern.

Keywords:   collective memory, prisons, low intensity conflict, battlelines
