This special volume of Irish Studies in International Affairs has been produced by the Royal Irish Academy to mark the 20th anniversary of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. The volume, which spans the period from 1994 to 2018, includes contributions from Martin Manseragh, Noel Dorr, Garret FitzGerald, Clodagh Harris and Adrian Guelke, among others. These selected articles explore some of the most important issues relating to the Northern Ireland peace process, from the origins of the conflict and its escalation to the basis for the Good Friday Agreement and why it was possible to negotiate it in 1998 and not in earlier years.
