Budget 2010: Live Blogging and Blog Carnival (Expressions of Interest)

November 4, 2009 4 comments

Lenihan BudgetHuman Rights in Ireland will be live blogging the Irish Budget 2010 on Wednesday 9 December 2009 (from about 3 p.m. onwards).

On Thursday 10 December 2009, International Human Rights Day, a mini Blog Carnival will assess the human rights impact of Budget 2010.

These postings could potentially include human rights analysis in the following areas:

  • Impact on human rights and equality institutions in the State, in particular after the draconian cut backs from Budget 2009;
  • The impact of potential cutbacks on economic, social and cultural rights at home (i.e. in the broad sense, from rise in taxes, to cuts in social welfare and other public programmes) and abroad (Irish Aid);
  • The right to work and budget measures in place that may assist in this right’s realisation;
  • The impact of the budget on sectoral groups: workers; the unemployed; the disabled; single parents; immigrants etc.
  • Other budgetary implications for human rights in Ireland.

Int Human Rights DayAs well as relying on the in-house expertise of Human Rights in Ireland bloggers, those  in the human rights, community, voluntary  and other related sectors are invited to submit proposals for commentary that they may wish to make on the budget. Blog posts should be between 400-1,000 words (max).

Those interested may contact me at (before 1 December 2009) so that a full Blog Programme can be ready to upload throughout International Human Rights Day.

Thank You!

Blog Carnival – Expressions of Interest Sought

October 12, 2009 2 comments

I would like to invite academic and NGO bloggers (we are interpreting the term broadly to include contributors to group blogs and occasional bloggers) who write about immigration issues to participate in our (hopefully) first blog carnival, entitled ‘Immigration and the Politics of Belonging in Ireland’. A blog carnival is a ‘blog event’: an edited collection of blog posts on a set theme, curated and organised by a host. Academics might think of it as a ‘mini symposium’ for bloggers. I would hope to curate a selection of 7-10 individual posts (more if I get a good response) as part of the carnival, together with an introductory ‘analysis piece’, drawing the contributions together. The posts would also be ‘cross-posted’ to the contributors’ own blogs. We hope that the carnival will provide an opportunity to promote writing on migrant integration and intercultural dialogue in Ireland, to assemble a number of insightful pieces in one place and to build an informal network of interested parties with a view to further collaboration. More details  overleaf.
