Posted on Thursday, 18 June 2009

The National Economic and Social Forum (NESF) has been asked by the Government to focus on the Irish experience of successful and unsuccessful implementation of official policies. As part of this, an NESF Project Team, chaired by Professor Áine Hyland, has been set up to examine policies on child literacy and social inclusion.

Have you information and stories to share with the Project Team?
