A Kingdom United? Devolution and Welfare Reform in Northern Ireland and Great Britain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Welfare to work has received less attention in devolution studies than other policy sectors. Drawing on Hall's (1993) 'orders of change' model as an analytical framework, this article addresses this deficit. The devolution settlement and constitutional question in Northern Ireland limit the likelihood of radical departure from 'parity' with Great Britain but differences are emerging.
