Social Justice Irelands Paper for IMF/ECB/EC Troika

Making choices in precarious times such as these a country, a government, a society or an international institution defines itself by:

The cuts it makes; the people it protects; its effectiveness on economic growth/jobs; its actions on public services; the values underpinning its choices.

In making decisions on these areas nothing is inevitable.  Choices are always being made. These choices are based on an analysis of the present situation and on a vision of the future towards which Ireland  should be moving in the view of those who make the decisions.

Social Justice Ireland believes that choices should be aimed at moving Ireland towards being a society characterised by social justice where human rights are respected, human dignity is protected, human development is facilitated and the environment is respected and protected.
