The Good Friday Agreement and Northern Ireland : Consociotional Democracy or not? (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to investigate if Northern Ireland and the Good Friday agreement are examples of Consociotional Democracy. According to the theory of Consociotional democracy it will create stability in divided societies. However, that has not been the case in Northern Ireland where division between unionists and nationalists continue and political stability is lacking. If Northern Ireland is an example of Consociotional democracy, the theory seems to have failed, at least in this case. By comparing The Long Friday Agreement and Northern Ireland to the 10 elements of Consociotional democracy presented in Arend Lijpharts book Patterns of Democracy: Government forms and performances in Thirty Six Countries I reached the conclusions that The Good Friday Agreement and Northern Ireland can be considered axamples of Consociotional democracy.
