Abstract

There are two major public policy objectives in Northern Ireland. One is the equality agenda designed to deliver the promise in the Good Friday Agreement of equality and parity of esteem for the two main communities and for members of other social and ethnic groups. The other is the Shared Future agenda designed to foster integration and good relations between the two main communities and between them and minorities.

The official position is that these two policy objectives are mutually consistent and complementary and can be pursued with equal commitment. The reality is rather less straightforward. There are in practice two different bureaucratic systems operating to two different models of implementation.

Keywords: Equality, Good Relations, Integration

JEL Classification: K10
