Inclusive Growth in Northern Ireland

The purpose of this report is to determine the scope for an inclusive growth agenda in Northern Ireland. It will seek to review literature on inclusive growth and, with reference to other countries’ approaches to inclusive growth, highlight the options available to Northern Ireland.

The aim is to help inform the work of the Northern Ireland Department for the Economy (DfE) and provide evidence that will help formulate an inclusive growth economy strategy in Northern Ireland.

The report does not prescribe the exact form that inclusive growth policy should take in Northern Ireland but offers recommendations on the process that DfE and its partners should consider if it chooses to build a full strategy.
