Kurzbeschreibung

Civil Society, Post-Colonialism and Transnational
Solidarity originates
from Louvet’s observation of the strong commitment of a layer of Irish civil
society- from the man on the street to political parties, associations and
trade unions- to the defence of  one  antagonist  or 
the  other  in  the  Israeli-Palestinian  conflict,
beginning with the  Six  Day  War  in  1967 and
increasingly so after the Lebanon Wars at the start of the 1980s and the
Second Intifada (2000-2005). This book observes how this phenomenon is
particularly striking in Northern Ireland, where Israeli and Palestinian flags
have been flown by Unionists and Nationalists as signs of solidarity and
identification. Louvet sheds light on the dynamics
and strategies at play in the Middle
East conflict in Northern Ireland but also in the Republic of Ireland, a
country considered to be widely sympathetic to the Palestinian cause. With an
overarching perspective highlighting the influence of Irish colonial history
over the motives and discourse of the different levels of mobilization in
civil society, this book shows the global movement towards the fragmentation and
specialization of transnational solidarity actions in Ireland.
