Beyond a culture of two halves: A close look at sectarianism in Scotland
This resource can be used to compliment any existing work you are doing on sectarianism. However, if this resource is being used as the basis of a programme, additional work would need to take place to ensure there is consistency between sessions. Only some exercises can be used in isolation. It aims to raise awareness of sectarianism and the impact that sectarian behaviour has on communities and individuals.
