dc.description.abstractThe research paper that I have written is my attempt to summarize the events which have created the current tensions in Northern Ireland. It also provides an historical and political analysis of Irish parliamentary reform, The Troubles, and the Northern Ireland peace process. In its most basic form, the paper attempts to demonstrate the way in which Ireland's historical circumstances drive the current political processes in Ulster. The inspiration for the paper comes from the time I spent working for Helen Jackson, PPS in the Northern Ireland Office, during June, July, and August 1998. It is important to note that volumes have been written on this topic and this paper is, by no means, a comprehensive account of Irish history and politics. The paper merely attempts to explain the historical circumstances that gave rise to the Act of Union, the partition of Ireland, and direct rule in Northern Ireland. At that point, it attempts to explain the difficulty behind resolving direct rule and creating a better future in Northern Ireland. The research paper and journal that follow constitute my Kalamazoo College Senior Individualized. Project.en_US
