Negotiated Governance and Public Policy in Ireland by George Taylor

Negotiated Governance and Public Policy in Ireland


Negotiated Governance and Public Policy in Ireland by George Taylor

Over the past ten years the Irish polity has experienced profound change. The pessimism that had engulfed Irish society during the 1980s has given way to a new found confidence, one that befits its status as an emerging, confident and cosmopolitan European state. This book provides a theoretical examination of this startling turnaround in the fortunes of the Irish polity and details the developments that have taken place in key areas of public policy over the last decade: civil service reform, the welfare state, environmental policy abd rural development. -- .
