Politics and Society

The Politics and Society modules equip students with the knowledge and conceptual tools that are the bases of informed citizenship.  The emergence of the independent Irish state; the partition of the island of Ireland; the entry into the EU; mass emigration; the dramatic transformation of what was an insular, inward society into one of the most globalised in the world; rapid economic expansion and contraction; mass immigration; sexual politics; crises of institutional legitimacy, have and are continuing to pose profound challenges to Irish society. Politics is the key to understanding and meeting these challenges.
