This report reviews the evidence on the impact of regeneration on poverty in Northern Ireland.
It is part of a wider research project for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation that looks at the impact of regeneration on poverty across the UK. A main report – Regeneration and poverty: evidence and policy review (Crisp et al.,2014) – comprehensively summarises all the evidence across the UK. This report on Northern Ireland is one of three smaller reviews produced, respectively, for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to ensure full discussion of the distinct approaches taken across the UK with regard to regeneration as a devolved policy area1.
Details of the methods used to review the available evidence are provided in the main report.
