Re-evaluating Irish National Security Policy

Affordable Threats?

Michael Mulqueen

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Arguments are supported by a bank of interview evidence, gathered after the author secured unprecedented access to senior staff of Ireland's security and intelligence agencies
  • Brings forth empirical evidence of international significance
  • Demonstrates the utility to the analysis of national security policy of three conceptual models of historical institutionalism, governmental politics and threat evaluation
  • Points to problems of Irish policy that are not only of urgent concern for Ireland but also increase the vulnerability of other EU member states to terrorist attack, especially Great Britain, with which Ireland operates a common travel area, and the United States
