Ireland is facing major choices,  They are the same choices that faced the country in the early 2000s.  They weren't addressed directly then and there is little evidence that they are being addressed directly now.  The chapters in Planning and Delivering a Fairer Future - Values, Democracy and Service Provision seek to address these choices.  They set out the challenges facing us and identify options, frameworks and pathways towards a future that would be just, sustainable and desirable.

It sets out five key policy areas it proposes should be addressed simultaneously if we are to build a fairer future i.e. macroeconomic stability, just taxation, social protection, governance and sustainability.  Below is a podcast outlining the contents of the review.
