These forty documents, presented alongside expert analysis by author and Irish High Court Judge Richard Humphreys, chart the evolution of the principles of the political and peace processes, from their inception right to the present day, from the Sunningdale Agreement of 1973, to the 1985 Anglo-Irish Agreement, the 1998 Good Friday Agreement and the New Decade, New Approach deal of 2020 that resolved the 2017–20 Stormont stalemate.

This definitive collection demonstrates the tremendous progress made towards peace and functioning politics, despite huge obstacles, and gives grounds for optimism for the future. Given the need to renew British–Irish relationships following Brexit, as well as the outstanding question of implementation of existing agreements, and the increased debate on Northern Ireland’s constitutional arrangements, Reconciling Ireland will be an invaluable reference work for legal and political engagement for generations to come.
