EAPN Ireland – Press Release: “Closure of Forum on Europe Short-sighted and Disappointing”

Responding to the disappointing closure of the National Forum on Europe, Anna Visser, Director of the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) Ireland, expressed concern that this closure is the latest in a long line of decisions that undermine and stifle the quality of Irish democratic debate. 2009 is a critical year for Ireland’s engagement with Europe.
