New research has shown that Northern Ireland’s innovative affirmative action programme has resulted in improvements in fair employment, both for Catholics and Protestants. In this article, we provide a non-technical account of this research and some preliminary "headline" results, together witha brief analysis of some policy implications. More detailed discussion, together with an account of research methods and data analysis will be published subsequently.
