From Analysis to Action

TASC was established in 2001. In 2021 we mark twenty years of policy research and public education on issues related to inequality and democracy in Ireland. TASC is the foremost research organisation for Irish civil society, and our reporting and analysis is trusted by other charities and non-profit organisations, policymakers, journalists and government institutions.

Commissioned Research with TASC

Our highly experienced research team are available to undertake commissioned research, conduct needs and policy analyses as well as provide capacity building and evaluative services.

We specialise in topics related to economic inequality, climate action and local wealth building, and processes of marginalisation and social inclusion.

To date, TASC’s commissioned work has involved translating analysis into practice through community-based projects. We have worked with corporate partners, think tanks and political parties in Ireland and Europe as well as other national and local charities.
