This event centres on the findings of an oral history project based on over 90 audio interviews with Loyalist and Republican ex-prisoners, The Open University staff, prison education staff and OU students who were associated with the prisons in a professional capacity during the period of conflict 1972-2000. This collective story provides a unique insight into learning, politics and conflict transformation in Northern Ireland in the 1970s in the Maze Long Kesh Compounds, ‘The Open University’s most unusual study centre’.
