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.

Preface

Ireland has made considerable progress in rebounding from the crisis, but, like other OECD countries, it continues to grapple with how to address the lingering impacts and make growth more inclusive going forward. Addressing these challenges requires multifaceted interventions, targeting both the most disadvantaged populations and the places where they live and work. Better understanding and addressing the relationship between people and place can lead to policies that more effectively foster social inclusion. In contrast, ignoring this relationship can lead to further entrenched disadvantage. Ireland has already undertaken a comprehensive series of reforms, and the question is now how to further build on these efforts and, as the title of this report suggests, better “weave” together the interventions already in place.
