I’m working on a Political Science question and need guidance to help me study.
Only two quizes.
What do you consider to be the most enduring challenge to reconciliation in the Northern Ireland conflict? What would you think a better approach might be? Is this challenge common to all reconciliation processes or just Northern Ireland?
Be sure to include a current event link to illustrate your answer.
News sources on the internet may be found in our Library (see the link on the left-side toolbar). Do an “advanced search” to set date parameters to the past six months.
Remember to read your texts, watch the videos, and read any other materials in Week Seven Lessons. Include those ideas in your discussions. Your initial post should be at least 350 words. Follow the Turabian Quick Guide style for author/date.

The purpose of theory is to offer an understanding of a complex world and the various interactions that take place within this environment. It is theory that allows us to think systematically. Fitting events into theory and using theory to explain and predict events are what separate the study of political science from a study of current events.
Select at least two of the articles assigned this week, and compare and contrast how each one applies theory. Use examples from the reading to discuss the type(s) of international events the theory is most and least useful for explaining.
Instructions: Your initial post should be at least 350 words.
