Les répercussions du processus de paix en Irlande du Nord sur les partis radicaux de la province : de la contestation à la participation

Abstract : The present work is an attempt to examine the impact of the northern irish peace process on the DUP and Sinn Féin, since these two parties used to be considered as being radical ones. The author consequently analyses the political and strategic transformation of these two parties during the peace process which eventually permitted the formation of a mandatory coalition in May 2007 as well as the restoration of devolution in the Province. The aim of this study is therefore to demonstrate how the DUP shifted from political and religious radicalism to moderation and how the Republican Party dissociated itself from the IRA's armed struggle to embark on exclusively political activities. Three questions underlie our analysis: Considering their radical political beliefs, which role did these two parties play in northern irish politics before the peace process? What was their interpretation of the different peace treaties and what enabled them to appeal to the northern irish electorate? Finally, following their political success, how did they manage to deal with their new political responsibilities, namely sharing power in Northern Ireland? This study thus intends to reveal the diplomatic and strategic mechanisms that contributed to the transformation of these two parties over the last decades and how they succeded in sharing political power.
