Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Féin paper on the Peace III Programme

Sinn Féin have already laid out our views on the need for a PEACE III programme and our initial considerations for the programme in previous documents. We believe the argument for a need for a continuance of the peace programmes has been won- now we must ensure that the programme's aims and structures are as suitable as possible in continuing the work of reconciliation and peace-building.

We and those we have worked closely with during PEACE and PEACE II have accumulated extensive expertise and practical knowledge of the difficulties and potential benefits of these special programmes. In this paper we outline how we believe the PEACE III programme can be improved and adapted to more accurately serve its purpose of reconciliation and peace-building.
