NUI Galway
Oral Presentation
Optional Fields
This paper examines the trajectory of Irish spatial planning as a means to understand national government perspectives on the region from a territorial cohesion and spatial justice point of view. It explores whether national-level thinking about territorial cohesion as an EU-level competence particularly as it pertained to spatial planning was influenced by issues such as levels of Structural Fund support. It also reflects on associated perspectives on the promotion of the region in development and governance terms.
