The Northern Ireland Anti-Poverty Network (NIAPN) is hosting a webinar on Wednesday 13th December from 10am to 11.30am to examine the topic of revenue raising given the fiscal and economic context of Northern Ireland. In September, the Secretary of State, Chris Heaton-Harris instructed the permanent secretaries of the NI departments to investigate ways to raise revenue, and consultations are now underway. This webinar aims to reframe the discussion about revenue raising, focusing on the reality of the Northern Ireland economy, from the impacts of austerity measures, budget cuts, low wages, and inadequate social security income; whilst also looking to ways in which revenue can be raised.
Speakers include Dr. Ciara Fitzpatrick Lecturer, School of Law, UU, John-Patrick Clayton Policy Officer, UNISON, Goretti Horgan Social Policy Lecturer, UU and Dr. Lisa Wilson Senior Economist, NERI.
