This chapter looks at the conflict between the mostly Protestant, Unionist majority supporting a political union with Great Britain, and the largely Catholic, Nationalist minority seeking the reunification of Northern Ireland with the other twenty-six counties of the island of Ireland. An analysis of the perspectives of these two parties within the civil rights movement offers preliminary answers to questions such as the relationship between ideology and strategy, and the factors that explain the consequences of strategic differences for intramovement dynamics. The chapter also states how forums that facilitate dialogue promote not only recognition and tolerance of strategic multiplicity, but also the possibility of strategic convergence.

Keywords:   Northern Island Civil Rights Movement, ideology, strategy, intramovement dynamics, strategic multiplicity, strategic convergence
