Everyday Life After the Irish Conflict

This chapter examines the extent to which segregation and division remain an active feature of life in Northern Ireland and the extent to which the long decade of peace had an impact on such fundamental divisions. Focusing on a variety of types of neighbourhood, the chapter shows that segregation and sectarian attitudes impact on different aspects of everyday life in differing ways in different areas. It also shows that the diverse impacts (some positive improvements, some continuing hostility and mistrust) are also affected by age, gender, class, location, and even times of the day, week or year. Thus, the peace process has had an impact on daily practices and perceptions of safety, sharing and opportunities for mixing and for crossing hitherto fixed, if largely invisible, boundaries but such changes still remain uneven and tentative.
