Impact of Social Welfare System on the Growth of the Irish Economy with Emphasis Placed on Unemployment (2014)

Irish Social Welfare System Dissertation – Studies have revealed that issues and crisis never emerge of their own rather they are born through injustice, illegal acts, unfair social systems and the non-involvement of the public in setting national goals and public activities.

The economic difficulties and the strict policies of the government are affecting the delivery of social welfare to the people and thus resulting into declined economic growth. In this study, the area under consideration is the Unemployment insurance and assistance which are flat-rate benefits provided by the Irish social welfare system. Unemployment insurance is paid at lower rates if other income is available. Unemployment assistance is income-tested on net income exceeding a disregard depending on family composition.

Housing benefits are available in principle, but the number of beneficiaries is very limited. Family benefits are universal, and additions to unemployment and assistance benefits are made for dependents. Two employment conditional benefits exist, targeted at part-time and full-time work respectively. A couple’s income is jointly assessed for income tax. The major objectives of this research are as follows:

  • The main objective of this research is to critically analyze and study the impact of current Irish social welfare system on its unemployment status.
  • It will find out whether the Irish social welfare system has negative or positive impact on economic growth by provision of its Unemployment insurance and assistance programs? And to which extent.
  • It will find out that can Ireland enhance its economic growth without improving its social welfare system measures regarding Unemployment insurance and assistance or not? If not, then what other factors can play important role in raising Ireland back to the heights of success.
  • The research findings will forecast the changes in the Irish social welfare system in near future. It will also recommend the necessary steps that must be taken to cope up with the latest unemployment crisis.
