Abstract: In this survey the experience of industrial policy in Northern Ireland is considered and the institutional underpinnings are highlighted. Unlike the rest of the UK, Northern Ireland had a period of devolution (c.1920-1972), which particularly after 1945 was associated with interventionism. In surveying the past, present, and future of such industrial policies, it is important to note the fact that supply-side weaknesses predated the Troubles and while much economic progress has been made since 1998, institutional issues remain. Brexit will provide additional challenges to the formulation of effective industrial policy.
