Ireland has undergone rapid transformation in recent years. Economically laggard and culturally conservative, it had long been known for its contrast, rather than similarity with its neighbours. It can now boast to have among the highest rates of economic growth in the EU, and recent referenda underpin how cultural change has taken place.

One area where things have apparently remained unchanged is its levels of income inequality. Though Ireland’s level of inequality is now the norm across Europe, historically it was considered high. The State We Are In examines inequality in Ireland today, with a particular focus on why market inequality is so high. It explores questions such as has inequality really not changed? How much of Ireland’s inequality is due to unequal wages? How much is due to low employment?

Join us for the launch of TASC’s Annual Report on Inequality on the morning of Wednesday, 11 March in Buswells Hotel, Dublin 2.

Speakers and panelists to date for the event include:

  • Aodhán Ó Ríordáin (Labour Party)
  • Aidan Regan (UCD)
  • Juliette McMahon (UL)
  • Robert Sweeney (TASC)
