Campaigning

An effective issue advocacy campaign requires more than just good lobbying; it requires a strategic ...

While t...

Invest in Knowledge Economy Now 

There is even greater need to invest in the local knowledge economy as Northern Ireland's economy shrank in the second quarter of 2015.    The statistics are measured using the Northern Ireland Composite Economic Index (NICEI), which is roughly equivalent to Gross Domestic Product (GDP). They are the most up-to-date figures for the economy, and show that optimism over growth may be premature. The local figures showed a contraction of 0.1% compared to GDP growth of 0.7% for the UK as w...
