    Research on the history of Belfast from the late eighteenth century has had a direct impact over the past eight years on the efforts of the municipality and the devolved government to formulate a policy on parades, flags and other disputed identity practices, to develop a strategy for managing the politically contentious issue of anniversaries, and to promote a shared sense of heritage in a divided city. The research has also had an impact in two other areas: civil society and public discourse.
