Pol Soc Podcast EP 11 The Irish Constitution

In this week's episode, Jerome is joined by three guests: Dr Jennifer Kavanagh of Waterford Institute of Technology, Sean Garvey of the Referendum Commission, and Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Mid-West Eoin Ó Broin. They discuss the background to, the workings of, and some of the possible future changes that might be expected to the 1937 Irish Constitution, Bunreacht na hÉireann. The role of the Referendum Commission is explained to students, and Deputy Ó Broin's proposal to include the Right to Housing in the Constitution is examined as a case study. As ever, the 'Listen-Along Guide' and numerous additional resources can be found on the 'Episode Notes' page for this episode at www.polsocpodcast.com/episode-11-notes/
