Colin Knox

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first book on devolved governance in Northern Ireland under the power-sharing government of DUP and Sinn Fein
  • Considers both structural reform of the bloated public sector in Northern Ireland and an agenda to improve the quality of public services
  • Engages in a debate about post-conflict Northern Ireland and asks whether reconciliation of the two different groups is possible
  • In short, will Northern Ireland people enjoy a shared future or a separate if equal society?
  • Charts how Northern Ireland is approaching the introduction of community planning and the regulation of central-local relations, developments that have already taken place in other parts of the United Kingdom
