The Agreement

About the resource
The Good Friday Agreement or the Belfast Agreement was signed on the 10th of April 1998, and was seen as a momentous breakthrough towards a peaceful joint future. Political parties campaigned during the Referendum for the public to vote ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
About the project
This education resource was created as part of the Linen Hall Library’s ‘Divided Society’ project. It is a learning tool aimed at GCSE students studying the 1990s period, however those studying politics and history subjects will also find its material relevant. The resource can be used to stimulate debate and will help towards the development of empathy and understanding of the topic. Included in the resource are samples of political cartoons, newspaper front pages and political posters. Materials are held at the Linen Hall Library.
