    Sectarian demography, territoriality and political development in Northern Ireland.

    Anderson J; Shuttleworth I

    POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY. 1998 Feb; 17(2):187-208.

    Here we discuss, firstly, the limits of Census-based empiricism [in Northern Ireland] and the usually unacknowledged problems of data and interpretation which have resulted in a seriously misleading `conventional wisdom'. Secondly, we question its sectarian terms of reference, the over-identification of religion and politics, and misconceptions of ethnicity.... Thirdly, we focus on some of the flawed policy `solutions' associated with empiricism and sectarianism, including `internal' power-sharing and `consociational' strategies for political development.
