… exploring the impacts of landscape boundaries social inclusion in Belfast

The project aims to examine whether the historical physical boundaries associated with sectarian segregation in Belfast remain influential in how people engage with and value the city’s landscape. In addition, the project will explore how ethno-cultural norms have led to the creation of invisible borders between and within communities, and how the changing development landscape of the city is addressing existing division.
