At this event which is being held to mark International Human Rights Day, author, academic and activist Dr Conor Mc Cabe will present a discussion document outlining the initial stages of a research project he has been carrying out for Clare PPN.
This project seeks to create a 5 year anti-poverty strategy for Clare based on the lived experiences of people encountering the various interlinked forms of poverty in the county. The project which is the first of its kind will run until May 2022 and is funded by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission under their Human Rights and Equality Grant Scheme 2021.
In this event Dr McCabe will present his initial analysis of the policies at a national and local level which provide the framework under which the economic development of Clare is being conducted. An open discussion on whether this framework is suitable to deliver sustainable rural and urban livelihoods in Clare will follow with input invited from those in attendance.
The project will continue in early 2022 with a series of peer to peer interviews and ‘town hall style’ meetings and focus groups where those affected by poverty in Clare as well as those providing state and charitable services in the county will be given the opportunity to input to this research.
While this event is open to all we particularly wish to invite our member groups, our political representatives and those working in the areas of planning and community development to attend this event.

Dr. Conor McCabe is a researcher and author of Sins of the Father: the Decisions that Shaped the Irish Economy (2013), and Money (2018). He works with political, trade union, and community groups exploring the dynamics of theory and action for societal change.

Clare PPN’s proposal for a vision statement for County Clare is:
‘A County that values, protects and restores its unique landscape, environment and
biodiversity, where sustainable livelihoods are prioritised for this and future
generations and where citizens, migrants, ethnic minorities and people of all abilities
and age-groups and genders are able to reach their potential in an atmosphere of
support, respect and inclusion, where Local Government is open, transparent and
accountable and committed to reducing poverty and marginalisation. Our vision is for
a county to be part of and a county to be proud of.’
