Northern Ireland conflict

graphic novel

Monica McWilliams was one of the two women at the negotiating table to end the Northern Ireland conflict in 1996. Together with the team from Studio ZX|Zeit Verlagsgruppe and Robert Bosch Stiftung, I was able to create a graphic novel in which Monica McWilliams recalls the demanding process of that time. This culminated in a peace treaty in 1998. Her story shows why it is essential for successful peace processes to involve female perspectives and those directly affected by the conflict.
