The chapter, initially published in 1989, reviews efforts by the UK and Irish governments to achieve a settlement in Northern Ireland during the late 1980s. It bears the impress of its time; normatively consociational, but somewhat bleak in its assessments. It contains an appraisal of constitutional options facing policymakers.

Keywords:   coercive consociationalism, integration, partition, cooperative internationalisation, arbitration, joint authority
