The Croke Park Agreement and Irish universities

By Juliana Adelman

A reader of Pue’s alerted me to this opinion piece in yesterday’s Irish Times (thank you, P).   The letter, signed by a long list of university staff including many professors, claims that implementation of the Croke Park Agreement in the university sector will have immediate and damaging effects including the curtailment of academic freedom.  DCU’s former president Ferdinand von Prodzynsk spells out what the agreement means in a post from the start of the month which you can read here. You can read Paddy Healy’s collection of material on the subject, including his own pieces in vehement opposition, here.  For a different viewpoint on the tenure issue, seen by many as threatened by Croke Park, see this post on the American context by ‘Dean Dad’.  Finally, let’s hear what you have to say!
