CLES have a long history of work in Northern Ireland, and Frances joined Dr Peter Kenway from the New Policy Institute, Derek Mc Callan from NILGA and Paul O’Brien from APSE on the closing panel to reflect on the day, present CLES’ work on local wealth building and debate the role of local government in NI as a key economic agent.
