Description:
The idea that people matter in modern democracies, often referred to as ‘civic engagement’ is recognised at the highest international level (United Nations 2008: 9). Civic or community engagement1 is essential to how budgets are decided, policy is developed and public services delivered. Significantly, community engagement is crucial in developing policy for sustained economic and social development. In Ireland the idea of the Developmental Welfare State (DWS) is based on the premise that the social policy system should support citizens so as to reach their full potential. Such a system comprises three overlapping elements: tax and welfare transfer, the provision of services and activist initiatives (National Economic and Social Council, 2005: ix-xviii). Civil Society Organisations have been challenged to ‘operationalise the DWS’ using a ‘life cycle framework’ as part of Ireland’s corporatist partnership model (Department of Taoiseach, 2006: 40). 2
