    DescriptionHow much do we know about how the peace, which was cemented by the Good Friday Agreement, has helped transform the Northern Ireland economy?

    Three economic historians at Queen's University, Graham Brownlow, David Jordan and John Turner, have analysed the evidence in an attempt to quantify the "peace dividend".

    They conclude that the dividend exists, but that it is disappointingly small.
