This paper presents the findings of a research project by Ms. Stanton into the experiences and change processes in young adults in a reconciliation program at Corrymeela Community in Northern Ireland. The research consisted of a qualitative, interview-based case study. In her paper, Ms. Stanton addresses the following subjects: background information on Corrymeela; reasons why people come to Corrymeela and what they experience in the reconciliation program; analysis of her findings into the nature of the personal impact of the program on participants; and challenges for participants when they leave Corrymeela and return to their local communities. An appendix lists the research questions used in the study.
