Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter examines in detail one aspect of the EU contribution to the peace process in Ireland. The Interreg programme offers special funding for cross-border regions within the EU and forms part of the overall framework of funding for Ireland – North and South – which has supported the peace process. It suggests that although the programme has been very successful in some other situations and still offers considerable opportunities in the Irish context, nonetheless the record to date shows only limited benefits, due mostly to the highly centralised nature of the UK and Irish states and to rivalry among agencies on both sides of the border.
