MPP Seminar: MacCarthaigh (Queen's University Belfast): Never waste a crisis

Followed by a wine reception in the Common Room, Newman Building. Muiris MacCarthaigh will present key findings from his latest book "Public Sector Reform in Ireland. Countering Crisis" (2017, Palgrave Macmillan). MacCarthaigh argues that a crisis can be used to overcome barriers and facilitate new reform agendas. The study draws upon unique insider access to the centre of Irish government, as well as interviews with over 60 key figures. MacCarthaigh discusses the process of shrinking the Irish state, renegotiating the political-administrative bargain, expenditure reforms, administrative culture reforms, and political reforms.
