Neoliberalism and the Voluntary and Community Sector in Northern Ireland

Ciaran Hughes, Markus Ketola

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book charts the changing relationships between government, voluntary and community organisations in Northern Ireland since the Good Friday Agreement.

It considers the role these actors have played in rolling out and normalising neoliberal discourses and policies. With lessons about the impact of neoliberal policies on governance, relationships and the peace process, this study explores how a core part of civil society has been shaped by both local policy priorities and broader political and economic processes.
