Writing Peace is a new initiative of the Quill Project in Pembroke College and the Faculty of History at Oxford University which will bring together archives from across the political spectrum to create a rounded view of the context and detail of the peace talks in Northern Ireland from the late 1980s to early 2000s. Our unique visualization of the primary source material will allow users to better understand the context within which key decisions and compromises were made, the origins of particular phrases, and the developing roles of individuals and political parties. Online resource collections and cutting-edge analytical tools will celebrate the full constellation of peace makers involved and will help scholars and practitioners alike to learn lessons for the future.
