Interesting piece from from BBC correspondent Brian Walker. The meeting in question is a yearly coming together of politicians, community workers and various classes of academics and is held under confidentiality rules.

He highlights one particularly interesting thought:

“…community workers on both sides of the west Belfast peaceline believed that ever higher peace walls, now numbering 27, are actually reinforcing sectarianism. People are saying, let’s create an interface and get a few million thrown at us,” said one local community leader.”
