This chapter explores in some detail the role played by the planning and attempting of escapes as a strategy of resistance for politically motivated prisoners in Northern Ireland. It examines the notion of escape as ideological conflict, the historical antecedents of escapes by Republicans and the different phases and types of escape during the current conflict, and finally the differences in attitudes to escape between Loyalists and Republicans.

Keywords:   political prisoners, ideological conflict, resistance, Republican prisoners, escape attempts, Loyalist prisoners
