One of the visible aspects of the conflict is the high level of segregation within society. This is evidenced by residential segregation, peace walls, sectarian graffiti, public display of flags and emblems in a manner aimed to mark territory and intimidate. As well as increasing social division and tension, segregation also inhibits the potential for economic development and the efficient delivery of public services.

 

This project will involve changes in both attitudes and behaviour with a corresponding reduction in segregation.
