This research project examined voting patterns and political attitudes in Northern Ireland at the 2017 Westminster election, dominated by the DUP and Sinn Fein and one which had wider outcomes for UK politics. The project examined the basis of party choice, analysed attitudes to devolved power-sharing and the issues that had caused problems for devolved government and asked questions on various social and moral issues.
