Abstract
The puzzle is long lasting conflicts. The conflict in Northern Ireland lasted from 1968 until 2007. Although there appeared to be a religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants it was a much more complex situation. My hypothesis is that Northern Ireland had a structural inequality that hindered the peace process. My aim is to test the Copenhagen school theory of social security with Northern Ireland as a case study. To analyse social security I use five indicators: employment, education, housing, income and discrimination. The five different indicators show the same result. Northern Ireland was a very unequal society between 1921 and 1998. As society became more egalitarian the peace process could continue and led to peace in 2007.... (More)

During the period 1998-2007 I find that Northern Ireland is more equal than ever before. The Copenhagen school theory works in this case, although the theory may be developed to suit the case even better. (Less)
