An academic from Queen's has been awarded a UK-US Fulbright Visiting Scholarship to the US to explore the role of Irish-America and the US government in both the Northern Ireland conflict and peace process.
"I'm delighted to receive this award. It will allow me to thoroughly research and thereby demonstrate the vital part that the US played in bringing peace to Northern Ireland.
"The tremendous role of President Clinton and Senator George Mitchell may be well known, but I also aim to show that many other activists and office holders in the US – both before and after the Clinton administration – worked for many years to advance peace and justice here.
"Arguably, the Northern Ireland case provides the best example of the use of US 'soft power' – that is purely diplomatic influence and economic support – to end serious conflict."
