Borders in Dispute: Making Multilevel Cooperation an Effective Means of Conflict Transformation in the European Union

Project Description

During her time as an IRCHSS Research Fellow in the Institute of British-Irish Studies from 2005-07, Katy Hayward furthered her study of multilevel cooperation and conflict transformation on the island of Ireland. The hypothesis behind this research is that the EU has unique potential for supporting conflict transformation across disputed borders not just through direct funding but in strengthening local structures of multilevel partnership.
