About this item

This book examines the governance arrangements in Northern Ireland through a multi-level lens, particularly in the period since the new institutions established through the 1998 Agreement became more firmly embedded.Northern Ireland can be examined as a particularly well-developed example of multi-level governance in terms of six levels of formal institutions of governance, namely the national UK government; devolved government; North-South All-Ireland institutions; local government; the EU and a broader international level. The book considers the consequences these different levels have for the divisions of powers and for inter-governmental relationships, and examines the definitions and value of multi-level governance.Offering a cutting edge assessment of the role of multi-level governance in providing good or stable government and in tackling and resolving political and social conflict, this book is key reading for advanced students and scholars working in the field of multi-level governance and government in Northern Ireland.
