Abstract

This article analyzes perceptions of the impacts of the International Fund for Ireland (IFI) and the European Union (EU) Peace II Fund on economic development in Northern Ireland and the Border Counties. It draws on interviews of 98 study participants conducted during the summer of 2006. The perceptions of community group leaders, funding agency civil servants, and development officers are explored. The images of the respondents and aid recipients of the EU Peace II Fund and the IFI are discussed in the broader context of peacebuilding and economic development in Northern Ireland and the Border Counties.
