In January 2003, Democratic Dialogue embarked on a research project on ‘community reconciliation’ in Northern Ireland.
The term reconciliation is not well developed in the region and no agreed definition exists, despite increasingly common usage. The study
explored how reconciliation is conceptualised and implemented, politically and at the grass roots, in different areas.
