Conflict Resolution

Working dilegenty to support the development of community led, grassroots conflict resolution and peace-building initiative. We are currently lead partner in the Belfast Conflict Resolution Consortium (BCRC). We seek to develop cross community peace bulding across all areas of Belfast. We have also provided leadership in the establishment of other groundbreaking interface initiatives. FCC believes that the needs of communities who have suffered most as a result of the conflict should be central to the regeneration of a new Belfast.

Duchas oral archive

Falls Community Council’s oral history archive Dúchas records the experience of the conflict in West Belfast. The Irish word Dúchas means ‘the experiences that make us what we are.’ The purpose of the work is to enable a community deeply affected by the conflict to contribute their experience to a historical record, in a process of moving forward. Over eighty interviews have been gathered to date and the collection is ongoing. An interactive digital computer archive has been developed to enable access to the interviews. The archive is open to the public and users can browse through the collection, listening to the recordings and reading the transcripts.
