Abstract

This article examines the images of 98 study participants interviewed during
the summer of 2006 and a public opinion survey of 1,023 adults conducted in
October 2006 with regards to the role of the European Union (EU) Peace II
Fund and the International Fund for Ireland (IFI) in community development,
reconciliation, and sustainable peacebuilding. The perceptions of community
group leaders, funding agency civil servants, and development officers are
explored with regards to the role of both funds in building the peace dividend
in Northern Ireland. Further, the article explains the importance of
community development and cross-community contact through joint
economic, peace and justice, and social development projects.
