Social Justice Ireland - Conference 2012
Does the European Social Model have a future?
Challenges and responses 70 years after the Beveridge Report
Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of the Beveridge Report on which much of the European Social model was developed following World War II. The value and viability of this model has been questioned in recent years. Its viability has been under much scrutiny in the context of the current economic and social crisis. Many questions have been raised concerning how it can be financed with the current focus on fiscal tightening.
A range of speakers from Ireland and abroad will address these questions at this conference and identify viable responses. The day will also include a 'round-table' of leading politicians representing Government and Opposition who will set out their positions on these issues. There will be ample time for those attending to engage with the speakers.
Dr Ide Kearney, ESRI
Professor Tony Fahey, UCD
Addressing Challenges on Income
Professor Philippe van Parijs, University of Louvain
Addressing Challenges on Services
Anna Coote, New Economics Foundation
Pathways for Ireland
Seán Healy, Brigid Reynolds, Michelle Murphy, Social Justice Ireland
The final part of the conference will be a roundtable discussion involving the following Government and Opposition T.D.’s:
Damien English T.D., Fine Gael
Joanna Tuffy T.D., Labour
Michael McGrath T.D., Fianna Fail
Pearse Doherty T.D., Sinn Fein
Catherine Murphy T.D., Independent representing the Technical Group
