In late 2016, CLM held a roundtable in the area of social welfare law concerning the decision making process in the social welfare appeals system.
CLM is conducting research to examine the themes of transparency and consistency of decision-making within the social welfare appeals system. In view of the fact that the Social Welfare Appeals Office does not publish its decisions, the research examines the impact of this upon consistency and transparency in the context of its decision making process.
We held a roundtable meeting with key stakeholders to discuss recommendations made on foot of the research. The purpose of the roundtable was to provide a forum to discuss the report and an opportunity to comment on the findings and recommendations.
