The Return of the Militants: Violent Dissident Republicanism


The Report has been provided by courtesy of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR)

This report deals with dissident republican groups in Northern Ireland – such as the Continuity IRA and the Real IRA, who continued to oppose the peace process, and have grown stronger. The report provides a timeline of  dissident activity, an introduction to each dissident group, examines the relationships they have with each other, and asks what their aims are. Drawing on the expert testimony of former security service personnel, Dr. Frampton looks at some of the problems faced by those whose job it is to deal with the threat – in a greatly altered security environment – and discusses possible responses to the revival of violent republicanism.
