This report was initially developed through a series of discussions involving key decision makers and influencers followed by over 45 facilitated workshop discussions with over 642 participants across Northern Ireland. It reflects the views of groups and individuals working to support conflict transformation and good relations at a time of reducing resources and, in some quarters, a hardening of attitudes and behaviours.

Consultations were conducted by 25 community relations groups including Belfast Interface Project, Community Relations Forum, Community Foundation for Northern Ireland, Community Dialogue, Churches Community Work Alliance, Foyle Interface Forum, Groundwork, Harmony Community Trust, Holywell Trust, Institute for Conflict Research, Intercomm, LINC, North Belfast Interface Network, Rural Community Network, REACT, St. Columb’s Park House, Suffolk Lenadoon Interface Group, Shankill Women’s Centre, Shankill Parish Caring Association, The Junction and TIDES Training.

The conversations in the workshops and between those involved in peacebuilding work served as the basis for the report, which can be found in our resources section.
