Professor Jon Tonge from the Department of Politics has won the Political Studies Association of Ireland Brian Farrell book prize.
Awarded for the best book published in politics in 2010, he received the award with three co-authors, Professor James McAuley, Dr Peter Shirlow and Dr Catherine McGlynn for Abandoning Historical Conflict? Former Political Prisoners and Reconciliation in Northern Ireland published by Manchester University Press.
The book is based upon a research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust. It involved interviews with more than 150 republican and loyalist former prisoners, to assess why they stopped fighting and how they developed a peace process. The book also examines the prospects for permanent peace.
The prize and â‚¬250 was presented at the Political Studies Association of Ireland’s annual conference dinner.
