State documents: Government officials wary of ‘social engineering’ regarding Belfast peace lines

Government officials and officials were reluctant to appear to be doing ‘social engineering to realign religious and cultural boundaries’ when dealing with the Belfast peace lines in the early 1990s.

declassified in March 1994, the draft report of the working group on peace lines in the city also stressed that the segregation of Protestant and Catholic communities “must be accepted as a reality” and “no attempt should be made to alter the religious complexion of the areas on the Protestant side of the peace lines, thus easing the Catholic pressures on housing ”.
