  • The United States and Northern Ireland: A Transatlantic Perspective | ucdclinton.ie | UCD Clinton
    took on the issue These differences were as between seeing the troubles of Northern Ireland in terms of the unfinished march on the Old World nation or as a political issue which had to be addressed in the objective terms and within the broader sphere of international affairs Placing the issue in the latter sphere demanded a different language Jimmy Carter had tried this strategy when he sought to see it in terms of human rights However Ronald Reagan returned to a more traditional mind set seeing it as a problem which should not be allowed to de stabilise his special relationship with Margaret Thatcher Thus although the Irish government had tried to highlight Northern Ireland as an urgent trouble spot in the international arena it was not until Bill Clinton became president that the issue became one which had to be objectively addressed as a test case for American influence and ingenuity He realised that now more than ever when there was only one superpower left the benign influence of American hegemony had to be seen to work Paradoxically this also meant challenging the sometimes canonical ways in which the problem had been articulated in Ireland It meant promoting a type of power sharing which would encompass all the interested parties of nationalism and unionism and most crucially the extremes within each This is not to suggest that this new spirit of political toleration was invented by the president of the United States After all the principles of non majoritarian democracy and the sharing of sovereignty are alien to the American constitutional tradition Nonetheless the mid to late 1990s managed to present the most powerful political officer in the world as a bona fide power broker in Northern Ireland and as one who was less interested in the backward look of his predecessors than in the political realities and pragmatism of the present Aims Against this background the aims of this workshop are to understand how since 1968 at official and governmental levels the United States has arrived at this new age intervention in Northern Ireland by the later 1990s as the problem became one of international relations rather than of colonialism the discourse of perception as well as solutions changed new actors such as high level American businessmen interacted with the older Irish American networks in presenting a new Case for Ireland the progress of the Cold War affected the perceptions of the issue and how Northern Ireland irrespective of the immediate issues which the narrower problem threw out became a catalyst for a new regime of policy formation within the upper reaches of the US government led by the National Security Council rather than the State Department as well as a mirror through which one can assess how the horizontal relationships of the diaspora as between Ireland and America as well as their vertical aspects within Irish America were altered during the last twenty five years of the twentieth century Project Director Dr Maurice J Brick MRIA
