Some issues remain unresolved and other agreements were needed, namely the Stormont House Agreement (2014); Stormont House: Fresh Start Agreement (2015); and New Decade, New Approach (2020). Implementation of the agreement was delayed due to differences in social reform and controversies over paramilitary activities.  The Justice Management Committee and scientists of the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation and the Transitional Justice Institute have developed a model implementation law on the management of previous elements of the agreement.  A group of civil society activists and academics adopted a set of gender principles for managing the legacy of the conflict in order to fill this gap in the agreement.  Social reform has also been the subject of wide-ranging differences between representatives of the executive (particularly Sinn Féin) and the UK government. The Ministry of Finance was determined that Northern Ireland would adopt social reform and fined the executive for failing to do so. Within the executive, the parties were divided. While Sinn Féin had opposed the adoption of social reform, the Democratic Unionist Party had tried to do so, arguing that it was inevitable and that an omission from London would result in further fines. One of the priority objectives of the Stormont House agreement, particularly from the point of view of the British government, was to resolve the welfare dispute and to adopt reforms. This package is the origin of the Stormont Agreement and the implementation plan concluded on 17 November 2016 between the British and Irish governments and the main parts of Northern Ireland, the Fresh Start Agreement. Detailed information can be found in the Commons Library`s information on the Stormont Agreement and Implementation Plan on the implementation of the provisions of the stimulus agreement to combat paramilitarism and balanced budgets. playNorthern Ireland talks: Leaders welcome a broad agreement The agreement was ubiquitous and included a wide range of topics. The agreement exists and is part of the paradigm established by previous peace agreements signed between 1998 and 2007.
The signing of the agreement was widely supported by the majority of Northern Ireland`s political parties, but not by the Ulster Unionist Party and external governments. However, the Northern Ireland trade union movement did not give much support to the agreement, which led a series of protests and public meetings against the agreement, and the majority of public service unions affiliated with the ICTU held a one-day strike on 13 March.  However, there is no firm agreement on the replacement of the Quango, which is currently ruling on the marching quarrels, the Parades Commission.
