IRISH SOCIAL POLICY ASSOCIATION
Social Policy in Recession and Recovery
Dublin, July 1st 2016, in association with the SOCIAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION (SRA).
The last decade has been one of dramatic change for Ireland. Through boom, bust, austerity and recovery, Irish society has experienced challenges, opportunities, successes and failures.Throughout the period, the impact of these experiences has been felt differently by people in different sectors, regions, age groups and socio-economic categories. Given the dramatic nature of these changes, questions arise for all areas of policy, including social policy, as we look back and look forward.
