Why is homelessness so widespread when Ireland has never been wealthier? How did we build so much more social housing for low income households in the 1950s when Ireland was a much poorer country? Why can’t young couples who both earn good salaries afford to buy a house like families with just one salary could in the 1970s? In this lecture I endeavor to answer these questions by examining the history of Irish government intervention in the housing market since the start of the 20th Century. I also reflect on what this history reveals about the theme of this lecture series – making home.
- PublicationSupporting LGBT Communities: Police ToolKit(UCD School of Social Justice, G-Force, and The European Gay Police Association, 2013)
;This toolkit provides police forces with practical educational tools, which can be used as part of a comprehensive LGBT strategy centred on diversity, equality, and non-discrimination. These materials are based on lessons learned through real life policing experiences with LGBT persons. The Toolkit is divided into seven scenarios where police awareness of LGBT issues has been identified as important. The toolkit employs a practical, scenario-based, problem-solving approach to help police officers assist real people in real life situations. It is designed to be broadly culturally appropriate for police forces in different countries. It is recognised, however, that every country will have different practical and cultural approaches to policing. The scenarios may be edited to change locations/names/policing language, to make them more appropriate for the police force concerned. It is envisaged that police officer training with this toolkit will be conducted in conjunction with LGBT NGO’s and/or police LGBT employee networks, Equality Bodies, and the LGBT communities directly for more effective long-term solutions. 1109
