This chapter discusses the lessons that can be learned from local and regional economic development (LRED) in post-conflict Northern Ireland. There is clearly a wealth of LRED activity taking place in Northern Ireland. This is indicated by the sheer number and variety of LRED organisations, and it is also evident in the large number and diverse range of objectives and activities that practitioners report. Based on the experience of Northern Ireland, the chapter suggests evaluating the cost and benefits of partnerships, reducing dependence on external funding, and giving more attention to endogenous development and less to subsidies to attract inward investment.

Keywords:   LRED, Northern Ireland, endogenous development, partnerships, external funding, subsidies, inward investment
