In exploring the interaction between reconciliation and identity in the process of making peace in post-conflict Northern Ireland, this article argues that while political and inter-personal levels of reconciliation are important, it is societal reconciliation which is pivotal in securing the sustainability of 'peace'. The article offers a detailed definition of 'social reconciliation' which it locates in the development of a multi-layered typology of reconciliation. The implications of what it claims is the necessary re-negotiation of identities in a post-conflict society are teased out with reference to the situation in Northern Ireland. Some contours of the need to embrace the other, even a threatening other, are sketched.
