Development Ireland : Contemporary Issues
Ireland, both north and south, is peripheral to the economies of Western Europe. The ability of Ireland to compete with new modes of industrial organisation is hampered by the underdeveloped and unevenly developed resources of the region. This book offers an insight into the limitations of contemporary development policies in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as well as offering an all-Ireland critique of Irish society and its structural limitations. The impact of the Single European Market and the continued peripheralisation of both economies within Europe supports the inclusive framework promoted within the collection, which argues for an essential rethink of contemporary policymaking throughout Ireland. This volume should provide an insight into the inadequacy of conventional and orthodox approaches to Ireland's economic problems.
