A Pivotal Briefing on what Governing Northern Ireland looks like without an executive, written in September 2022.
This briefing paper provides evidence and analysis about how this form of government is working. As an independent think tank, Pivotal takes no view on the politics of the situation. The paper looks at what can and cannot be done by ministers, civil servants and MLAs in theory – and what has been happening over recent months in practice. The paper ends with ideas about how best to proceed, whatever the political landscape.
