A Fresh Start for Equality?
The Equality Impacts of the Stormont House Agreement on the ‘Two Main Communities’
An Action Research Intervention
This research addresses the question of the equality impacts of the Stormont House Agreement (SHA) and the recent ‘A Fresh Start’ agreement. It focuses on these impacts with relation to the ‘two main communities in Northern Ireland’ and addresses wider equality issues – including gender and ethnicity – as these intersect with Protestant and Catholic differences. As a piece of ‘action research’ it uses its partnership with the Equality Coalition to ground its analysis in the experience of many of those organisations closest to the ongoing efforts for equality in Northern Ireland.
