Locality Matters: Ethnic Segregation and Community Conflict--The Experience of Protestant Girls in Belfast
Healy, Julie
Children & Society, v20 n2 p105-115 Apr 2006
Research continues to illustrate the resonance and intensity of feeling that attachment to a locality can generate, within this highlighting the gender-specific impacts created by the intersection of ethnicity and locality. Within the ethnically segregated working class communities of Belfast, the importance of locality takes on added significance. By focusing on a case study of Protestant girls aged 7-8 and 10-11 years living in a predominantly Loyalist community in Belfast, the study demonstrates the significance of locality and the girls' experience of sectarian residential segregation and community conflict in Belfast. The findings highlight the importance of engaging with children to increase our understanding of their lived experiences and to inform policy and decision-making on matters of importance to their lives.
