Frank Amyas Wright (1948 - 1993):
Peace worker


Frank Wright was born in Oxford and was educated at Trinity College, Oxford. In 1969 he won the Gibbs Prize for politics, and in 1973 he became lecturer in Comparative Politics at Queen's University Belfast, first having begun research in the Institute of Irish Studies. He wrote Northern Ireland in Comparative Perspective and Developments in Ulster Politics, 1843-1886. He was active in working for peace in Yugoslavia, though his special area of research continued to be Northern Ireland. In 1992 he was given the Chair of Peace Studies in the University of Limerick. He was deeply involved with the Corrymeela Community, an interdenominational Christian group working for reconciliation, based in Ballycastle, County Antrim, and with the Understanding Conflict Project. He was an artist.
