Irish Social Policy Association Taxation and Welfare Seminar - 23 Nov

Posted on 15 Nov 2022

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.
