The Good Friday Agreement (1998) was heralded as a ‘new beginning’, an agreement that would end decades of political instability and sectarian violence. It provided for the establishment of a range of new and inter-linking political institutions and, through a complex system of judicial reform, equality legislation and demilitarisation and decommissioning pledges, sought to change the everyday lives of people on the island of Ireland, north and south. This chapter theorises what the ‘politics of everyday life’ consists of, and asks to what extent the promise of the Good Friday Agreement is being fulfilled over a decade after its signing.
