Using original data from research interviews and policy documents this chapter explores the different origins of dissident organisations, their claims of a mandate, their interpretation of Sinn Féin’s position and their stance on electoral politics. In considering groups such as Republican Sinn Féin (RSF), the 32 County Sovereignty Movement (32 CSM), the Irish Republican Socialist Party (IRSP) and éirígí, this section acknowledges the influence of wider networks, the influence of socialism and the dynamics between localised and historical context. The groups explored here all emerged at different times, for different reasons and from different branches of Irish republican lineage. Despite being placed under the same banner of ‘dissidents’, this chapter argues that these groups all have their own niche on the republican spectrum.
