The Economy of Northern Ireland: Perspectives for Structural Change

The essays in this collection focus on the need for a radical rethink of economic policy in Northern Ireland. The central theme of the collection is that Northern Ireland needs a regional policy based on the creation of an agglomeration economy. This, in turn, requires the back-up of a regional institutional framework.

To create such a framework Northern Ireland needs new structures of governance, based on further disconnection from the mainland.
