Abstract

The Good Friday Agreement of April 1998 led to the creation of a new set of political institutions within Northern Ireland and between Great Britain and the island of Ireland. A central tenet of the agreement was to promote cross-border cooperation on an all Ireland and border region basis and, consequently, the new institutional setting for this cooperation forms the core of this research. The article will first sketch an analytical approach that enables the analysis to address new policy processes, the state authority, and the multitude of actors involved. Secondly, it will proceed to an in-depth description of the genesis of the implementation of EU-sponsored cross-border cooperation in the context of the Irish border region. The examination will encompass a description and analysis of the development of the European specific border region programme ‘INTERREG’ and the limited results achieved by cross-border cooperation in such framework. Finally, the article will interconnect the creation of new political institutions within Northern Ireland and between North and South with experiences of regionalism and peacebuilding in order to analyse how processes of EU integration and association are related to border conflict amelioration on the island of Ireland.
