The Irish Welfare State in and after crisis

Social policy conference which aims to analyse and debate changes to the Irish welfare state since the onset of the economic crisis in 2008.

Since 2008 Irish society and the Irish welfare state have undergone enormous upheaval and change. Poverty, unemployment, inequality and related social problems have all increased. Significant areas of the welfare state are being re-shaped and the pace and nature of reform has been substantially altered. Yet this crisis has also instigated campaigns of resistance and alternative proposals to Ireland’s existing welfare and economic model. This conference aims to take stock of these developments.
