Irish Social Policy Association Taxation and Welfare Seminar - 23 Nov
The Irish Social Policy Association is delighted to host our autumn 2022 seminar on: The Report of the Commission on Taxation and Welfare.
Date and time: Wed 23 November 6pm to 8pm
Location: Carmelite Centre, 56 Aungier St., Dublin (ground floor room on left as you enter).
As Ireland copes with the challenges of funding services for a rapidly-ageing population, plans introduction of a National Health Service under the Sláintecare reforms, and meets the challenge of climate change, public spending will need to rise as a share of national income. The Commission's Report examines how we fund public services in the medium term, and what changes are needed in the social welfare system.
Our speakers are:
- Dr Colm O'Reardon, Secretary to the Commission
- Dr Tom McDonnell, Director Nevin Economic Research Unit and member of the Commission.
Speakers will talk about the tax and welfare proposals.
Our respondents are:
- Rosheen Callender, formerly Economist and Equality officer with SIPTU
- Professor Mary Murphy, University College Maynooth.
Hope to see you there for our first in-person seminar since the pandemic, and for a lively panel discussion.
