Katherine Side (2015) Patching Peace: Women's Civil Society Organizing In Northern Ireland. St. John's: ISER. ISBN-13: 978-1-894725-23-1



Patching Peace breaks critical new ground in understanding the intersections between gender, civil society, and peace processes in Northern Ireland. Side skillfully locates her case study within a richly textured historical, political and economic landscape to illustrate how a complex array of factors has worked to both facilitate and constrict women's civil society organising.

--Dr. Marie Hammond Callaghan, Mount Allison University

Katherine Side's meticulous study of the peace-building efforts of the Moyle Women's Forum provides insights that have universal application. This book is essential reading for students, researchers, and practitioners of conflict resolution.

--Dr. Yvonne Galligan, Queen's University Belfast

Anyone planning to study or write about conflict transformation, gender and politics, social movements, or the history of politics in Northern Ireland should read this book. 

--Dr. Carmel Roulston, University of Ulster
