Teens and Territory in 'Post-Conflict' Belfast

Manchester University Press

This chapter outlines the segregated nature of housing and education in Belfast and its impact on young people who grow up in segregated localities. These territorial and educational divisions mask the extent to which each community is internally heterogeneous by allowing sectarian identities to flourish and mingle with other identities so that being a Catholic or a Protestant teenager still fundamentally matters and impacts on spatial practices. The chapter critically unpacks policy attempts to deal with ongoing geographically specific territorial divisions through attempts to reimage the city through the concept of shared space and outlines the durability of divisions in that when young people leave and access areas outside immediate localities, they often do so in pre-established groups.
