Coming from the Silence

Coming from the Silence :Quaker Peacebuilding Initiatives in Northern Ireland 1969–2007

Edited by Ann Le Mare and Felicity McCartney

‘Coming from the Silence’ describes the work of four major projects and a number of smaller initiatives taking place between 1969 and 2007. It sets the work in a wider Quaker context and analyses it from an international development perspective. Quaker House Belfast, Ulster Quaker Service Committee, the Centre for Neighbourhood Development, and the Quaker Peace Education Project in Derry are covered in depth and a general chapter refers to a variety of smaller initiatives by Friends.
