About the CAIN site
Why did you call the project CAIN?
CAIN stands for Conflict Arcive on the INternet. Initially the site concentrated on the recent violent conflict in Northern Ireland. However, the site has been expanded to include information on politics in the region. Some background information on Northern Ireland society has also been added to the site. The name of the site also refers to the biblical story of Cain and Abel. In a number of respects the violent conflict resembled a civil war.

Who is responsible for the CAIN site?

CAIN is an associated project of INCORE and is based in the headquarters of INCORE at Aberfoyle House on the Magee campus of the University of Ulster. CAIN is also one of a number of web sites and services that together form ARK. Much of the material at the CAIN site is in the form of contributions supplied by academics in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and further afield.
