No Easy Divorce

Méabh Browne (PhD Researcher, Technological University Dublin)
Irish divorce law is unfit for modern Ireland. Because divorce cases are private, no one knows their process or outcomes. Data suggests women may be doing poorly. I am collecting the data to find out.

TechMate: A best practice toolkit for driving sustainable acceleration towards gender equality in technology disciplines in HEIs

Alina Berry (PhD Researcher, Technological University Dublin)
This talk presents TechMate, a TU Dublin PhD project that explores ways to effectively implement gender initiatives in computing higher education in Ireland and beyond, and hence, to address the issue of gender imbalance in technical disciplines.

Can economists really help with climate change?

Niall Farrell (Senior Research Officer, Economic and Social Research Institute Ireland)
Economics is the study of choices and how we can best use scarce resources. One of our most valuable resources is our environment, and environmental economics studies how individuals and firms make choices, and how we can guide those choices towards those that are most sustainable. This talk will highlight some of the policies intended to guide more sustainable practice and the rationale behind their introduction. We will highlight the main impediment to effective climate action.
