Research on Metropolitan Government and Local Government Reform

  • 18 Mar 2014

The CPER contribution to the debate on local government reform continues with the publication in January's instalment of the Administration Journal.

Following presentation at a conference on New Regional Governance in Ireland: Perspectives and Challenges, organised by the Regional Studies Association in conjunction with the Department of Geography/NIRSA, NUI Maynooth in January 2013, William Brady and Clara O’Neill published a follow-up article in the Institute of Public Administration’s journal, Administration in January 2014 entitled “Local government reform in Ireland: An opportunity for metropolitan planning.” The paper calls for a new focus on the governing challenges for Ireland’s second-tier cities and makes a case for establishing a new ‘Metropolitan’ scale of government in the case of the Cork city region.
