First Day of power-sharing

About the resource
The formation of the first power-sharing assembly was a result of the public’s vote on The Good Friday Agreement, sometimes referred to as the Belfast Agreement. The peace deal was broadly welcomed by the public and the document was agreed on the 10th of April 1998.
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.
