Weaving Together Policies for Social Inclusion in Ireland

image of Weaving Together Policies for Social Inclusion in Ireland

Ireland has made considerable progress in rebounding from the crisis, but, like other OECD countries, continues to grapple with how to address lingering socio-economic impacts and ensure inclusive growth growing forward. Multi-faceted interventions, targeting disadvantaged populations and the places they live, can lead to more effective and inclusive policies. Ignoring the relationship between people and place will, in contrast, lead to further entrenched disadvantage. This report looks at some of the ways in which Ireland can build on an already comprehensive series of reforms to better weave together current policies and practices.

Foreword

While Ireland has made considerable progress in rebounding from the 2008 economic crash, making growth more inclusive remains a key challenge going forward (OECD, 2015a). Within the context of strong recent GDP growth and a falling unemployment rate, longterm unemployment and the rate of jobless households remain high. Ireland is not alone in grappling with these issues - countries across the OECD are increasingly recognising the importance of promoting economic growth that improves living standards and distributes the benefits of increased prosperity more evenly across social groups (OECD, 2015b).
