[Nukhet A Sandal] -- The book introduces a theoretical framework to understand the role of religious leaders in conflict transformation and peacebuilding. Book Description. Has conflict in Northern Ireland kept political dimensions of religion alive, and has religion played a role in fuelling conflict? Conflict in Northern Ireland is not and never will be a holy war. Yet religion is more socially and politically significant than many commentators presume.
