UCD/UL/DEW Conference on Irish Economic Policy

27 January 2012

On January 27th 2012, the Geary Institute will run an event on the future of Irish economy policy in Dublin.

An era of unprecedented growth followed by a dramatic economic collapse is giving way to several years of sluggish growth. The main theme of the conference will be the development of more intelligent economic policy that enables substantial development even in the context of a tightened fiscal and monetary environment.

The conference will take place over the course of the full day, with parallel sessions addressing employment, innovation, education and related themes. The conference aims to provide a forum for new ideas on the conduct of Irish economic policy, including the extent to which academic economics and related disciplines can make a bigger contribution to the conduct of economic policy in Ireland, and the extent to which policy can be designed more effectively.

The conference organisers are Liam Delaney, Colm Harmon and Stephen Kinsella.
