Welcome to the Critical Issues in Irish Society website.
This network is open to PhDs and early stage researchers across the island of Ireland (and beyond!) who wish to connect and create a dialogue around issues of critical importance in Irish society.
It was founded in 2010 by PhDs in the School of Sociology UCD and mostly consists of students from human science, arts and humanities. But we’re open to researchers and students from all disciplines wishing to contribute to the issues raised by the group.
From Jan to May 2011 the CIISN network hosted a series of seminars on topics ranging from the labour market to health. You can browse the working papers, listen to the podcasts or download the PowerPoint presentations here.
Upcoming events for 2011/12 will be posted on this site, so please check back for updates. Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

All the best,
The Critical Issues in Irish Society Network
