The Minister for Communities Deirdre Hargey has nominated members of an Independent Advisory Panel to review welfare mitigation measures. Ulster’s Dr Mark Simpson has been appointed to this panel which will be chaired by former NIHRC Chief Commissioner (and Ulster Visiting Professor) Les Allamby.
The appointment reflects Mark’s expertise in social security rights. Mark’s first book, Social citizenship in an age of welfare regionalism: the state of the social union, will appear with Hart in 2022.
