The Nevin Economic Research Institute was founded by the Irish trade union movement to produce quality research to highlight issues relevant to Irish workers, to challenge dominant narratives in public discourse and to put forward a vision for a new economics for the island of Ireland, for an economy that works for workers, their families and their communities and not the other way round.
Economics does not exist in a vacuum; it’s affected by customs, laws and the broad structure of society. By politics. This series will look at issues you might not hear about in our broader media landscape.
