PURSUING THE COMMON GOOD: AN ETHICAL FRAMEWORK FOR PROMOTING RECONCILIATION WITHIN THE YOUTH SECTOR IN NORTHERN IRELAND / THE NORTH OF IRELAND

by Cathy Bollaert

Envisioning a future to which all can aspire is integral to building a peaceful and thriving society. However, with the current Brexit negotiations taking place, society is standing at a crossroad of an uncertain future. This has the potential to negatively impact on building the confidence of young people to deal with the legacy of the past and build their view and hope for the future. As Northern Ireland/the North of Ireland continues to deal with the legacy of the Troubles, and in the interests of building a shared and peaceful future in which all the members of the society can flourish, there is a need to keep a spotlight on reconciliation within the youth work sector and explore the question of where to next for reconciliation within the youth work sector. Using the common good as an ethical framework, this paper draws on the voice of young people to set an agenda for reconciliation in youth work practice.

About the Glencree Journal

This essay was written for ‘Dealing with the Legacy of Conflict in Northern Ireland through engagement and Dialogue’, a Journal by Glencree in conjunction with the Irish Centre for Human Rights at NUI Galway and Ulster University. The Journal forms part of Glencree’s Peace IV ‘Addressing the Legacy of Violence through Facilitated Dialogue’ project which focuses on creating meaningful, purposeful and sustained contact between victims/survivors groups, and representatives of groups and individuals with differing interpretations of what happened in Northern Ireland’s past. It also aims to create forums to share learnings from these dialogues on a national and International basis.

Featuring contributions from 19 authors, including academics and practitioners in the fields of peace studies and conflict resolution, the Glencree Journal brings a keen focus to many of the issues that are intrinsic to the Peace IV Project. It will also help to inform practitioners in a wide variety of fields of future pathways to sustaining a just and equitable society in a post-conflict situation. The Journal essays were peer reviewed by the Editorial Team led by Professor Ray Murphy of the Irish Human Rights Centre at NUI Galway, Professor Patricia Lundy, Dr Niall Gilmartin and Dr Philip McDermott of Ulster University, and Dr Rory Finegan, Maynooth University and formerly Assistant Manager (2020) at Glencree of the Peace IV ‘Addressing the Legacy of Violence through Facilitated Dialogue’ Project.
