Globalisation discourse in Ireland

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the nature of the relationship between the emerging public discourse in Ireland and the hegemonic discourse of globalisation. It analyses the discourses of the key institutional actors to determine how the globalisation discourse implicated in the discourses, strategies, policies, and identities of these actors and how the materialisation of globalisation discourse was affected by the domestic institutional configuration. This chapter highlights the fact that the concept of globalisation was relatively absent from Irish public discourse during the period 1996–2001 and this absence was complemented by the existence of an all-powerful economic globalisation agenda.

Keywords: public discourse; hegemonic discourse; globalisation; Ireland; institutional configuration
