Shared Island: Projects, Progress & Policy Scoping Paper (153)

The Department of the Taoiseach has asked the National Economic and Social Council to produce a comprehensive report on the Shared Island in 2021, to inform the development of the Shared Island initiative as a whole-of-government priority. The NESC research will contribute to building a shared knowledge base and understanding about possible ways in which greater co-operation can emerge across a number of economic, social and environmental areas in Ireland, North and South, and also between these islands East and West. The research will seek to engage with all communities and traditions on this island to build consensus around a shared future, with a focus on actionable areas of cooperation. The work will be underpinned by the Good Friday Agreement and absolute respect for the principle of consent. The research will not address the constitutional question, but will focus on sustainable economic, social and environmental development issues, in line with NESC’s strategic remit.
