The cost-of-living crisis continues to have a significant impact on households, hitting those on low-incomes hardest. This event focused on the social and economic inequalities that currently exist, with a panel of four speakers. The panel and attendees then considered solutions going forward. The chair was Ciara Fitzpatrick (Ulster University), and the event was organised by Alexandra Chapman (ARK).
The event was dedicated to Professor Eileen Evason, who previously worked within the Ulster University Social Policy team for almost 30 years and was a lifelong campaigner for equality and women’s rights.
This webinar marked the public release of results from the 2022 Young Life and Times (YLT) survey. YLT is an annual survey which records the attitudes of young people aged 16 living in Northern Ireland to key issues affecting their lives.
In this event, Professor Dirk Schubotz (YLT Director) highlighted key findings from the 2022 survey, which included questions on good relations, education, politics, and gender-based violence.
In 2021, the ARK NILT survey asked the Northern Ireland (NI) population about their views on a range of issues relating to fairness with regard to incomes, taxes and social security, financial hardship and the cost of the living. It did so at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic had brought about both an economic and public health crisis impacting the everyday lives of many people. The fieldwork for the survey took place during the final quarter of 2021, just before an Omicron wave of COVID-19 infections.

In this new Research Update, Siobhan O'Neill (Northern Ireland's Mental Health Champion), Margaret McLafferty and Paula Devine explore public attitudes to mental health and suicide in Northern Ireland, based on data from the 2021 Northern Ireland Life and Times (NILT) survey.

This webinar was presented by Professor Katie Featherstone (University of West London). It is based on her ethnographic research on hospital care of people living with dementia, and will introduce us to the topic of the rules that dominate these institutions, the way these rules are constructed and enforced, and their consequences for patients.
The event was chaired by Ángel Leira Pernas, PhD student on the ARK Ageing programme. Professor Featherstone will present her work, which will be followed by a response from Mr. Pernas.
This is the first event in the Next Generation Thinking in Research on Ageing series, and it took place at 11am on Wednesday 11 May via Zoom.
