The proposed research, which concerns the legacy of The Troubles in NI, aims to cast light on how issues of identity, trauma and well-being are connected inter-generationally. The first two of these will comprise important tests of the SIMTIC. The research will focus on both an older sample of parents who have experienced The Troubles first-hand and a sample of parent-offspring dyads. The findings can be expected to improve our understanding of the psycho-social dynamics of conflict, its propagation over time and the longer-term influences on collective identity, belonging and well-being which follow from it. This may enable researchers to develop future community-based interventions which may affect community relations.
