Current Research

 Compromise After Conflict

An onging major project involves the cross-national study of compromise in post-conflict societies. Based on a Leverhulme programme research grant of £1.26 millions over six years, this project looks at the nature of compromise, its emotional parameters, behavioural expressions and links to other affective-relational stress responses, such as hope, forgiveness and memory. The focus is on the development of compromise amongst victims of communal conflict as a case study in compromise. We address three contemporary arenas of conflict (Northern Ireland, South Africa and Sri Lanka) and four historical cases (the USA after the civil war, West Germany after the fall of Nazism, Spain after the death of Franco and the Lebanon after its civil wars), as well as exploring the verbatim evidence of witnesses during truth recovery procedures. This is a mixed-method programme, involving surveys, qualitative interviews, and historical and documentary research. The work is being done with Professor John Brewer and Dr Francis Teeney (Queen's University of Belfast) and involves collaboration with colleagues in Northern Ireland (Yvonne McGivern), Sri Lanka (Asian Institute of Missiology) and South Africa (Professor Clifford Shearing).
