TCD Policy Institute event on mortgage arrears

The topic of mortgage arrears remains close to the top of the political agenda, with the Government set to announce measures today on the issue. Next week, we are very fortunate to have in Dublin one of the world’s leading experts on housing markets, arrears and foreclosure, Fernando Ferreira of Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Policy Institute, based at Trinity College Dublin, has organised a mini-conference on mortgage arrears for the morning (9am to 11.30am), next Monday 18th May in Trinity College Dublin (JM Synge Theatre, Room 2039, Arts Building). The mini-conference centres on factors influencing mortgage arrears and repossession and focuses in particular on the US and Irish experiences. Speakers include Fernando Ferreira (Wharton & NBER) and Yvonne McCarthy (Central Bank of Ireland). There will also be a panel discussion and time for questions/comments from participants.

All welcome with no need to register.

  1. Indymedia Ireland is a citizen journalism site that is international but also has held sway in Ireland since 2001.

    Many people say that nobody could see the writing on the wall about the property crash but if you look to Indymedia you will find quite to the contrary. I suggest searching Rent Allowance, Urban Abandonments, Homelessness, JobBridge and many others. In case you are unaware of Indymedia, D4 Cox in Maynooth University writes on it; it is apparent that there is a social media research study done under his auspices, and it may be relevant but may I add not necessarily well researched!
