A Dual Narrative of Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland’s deep history of conflict is still an active act of reconciliation. This tour provides a unique Dual Narrative perspective on both sides, with Catholic and Protestant tour guides sharing their community histories and stories. Given the conflict’s personal nature, travelers will meet with several locals across Belfast and Derry/Londonderry, including journalists, politicians, historians, and artists—for insight into how peace was built and how so many work hard to sustain it today.

All the trips we take are educational and geared towards cultural immersion, and that’s true of MEJDI. But none are so first hand and intentionally personal as the MEJDI tour guides are.

You come away hopeful because the tour guides can have such different backgrounds and experiences and opinions and still respect each other, And, they introduce you to groups that are working to spread that throughout the world.
