Belfast Peace and Reconciliation Action PlanWe have been awarded significant funding under Priority 1.1 of the EU PEACE III Programme, managed by the Special EU Programme Body to support programmes and projects which are working to create shared space and create positive relations in Belfast. These projects form the Belfast PEACE III Plan.
Phase I of the Belfast PEACE III Plan ran from 2008 to June 2011. The plan has seen the establishment of more than 81 new partnerships. Including over 12,000 participants taking part in the projects and more than 60,000 people attending events supported through the programme.
Phase II of the Plan begins in autumn 2011 and will run until the end of 2013.
The plan is one of 14 plans led by local authorities in Northern Ireland and the border counties. It is funded entirely under the Priority 1.1 of the PEACE III Programme for Northern Ireland and the Border Counties of the Republic of Ireland by the European Regional Development Fund.
The aim of the plan is to build positive relations at a local level and to tackle sectarian and racist attitudes with a focus on conflict resolution and mediation at a local community level. The plan is structured around the following four key themes, all informed by the concept of shared space:
- securing shared city space
- transforming contested space
- developing shared cultural space
- building shared organisational space
