Welfare Regimes under the Irish Poor Law 1850-1921

Poor Law Workshop 27 Apr 07

As part of the first phase of the project, a workshop was organised at Oxford Brookes to bring together historians of the poor law throughout the United Kingdom. The aim was to share information and theoretical perspectives and thus to provide a framework for subsequent research. The workshop programme, together with a commentary on the day, and copies of the papers delivered are available below. Click on the title to download the paper.
