Managing Agricultural Change: Evidence from Ireland (2010)

Author(s): Hubbard MC

    Abstract: This paper examines key features of Irish agricultural transformation following accession to the European Union (then the European Economic Community). More precisely, it focuses on the trends of agricultural structural changes and the major policy measures that influenced these changes, between 1973 and 2006. It also attempts to identify the major driving forces for managing Irish agricultural (and rural) changes and draws some potential lessons that may be helpful for decisionmakers in the New Member States.
