Description:
This paper analyses the way in which anti poverty policy has been institutionalised in the social partnership process and the place of anti poverty policy in the State's policy hierarchy. It is grounded in international academic research that seeks to explain why and how once policy ideas become firmly embedded in political institutions, such as a social partnership process, those ideas are able to structure the policy outputs of those institutions and also why such embedded policy ideas are difficult to change. In Ireland a set of ideas on the management of the economy and the relationship of those ideas to anti-poverty policy were institutionalised in the policy hierarchy from the beginning of social partnership in 1987. The institutional locking of these ideas has meant that policy making has during the life time of the partnership process taken place within this framework, explaining why anti-poverty policy has not adapted to the new economic context in Ireland, and why it is unlikely to produce stronger anti-poverty outcomes without a significant change in the macro policy environment.
