Gambling Policy and Regulation in Ireland: Catching up with the Digital Age

Wednesday, June 23, 2021 - 10:30

*Postponed*** Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have taken the decision to reschedule our event on ‘Gambling Policy and Regulation in Ireland,’ due to take place on Wed. 23rd June. We will revisit in the Autumn. Thank you to everyone who registered. More soon.

The Gambling Research Group at Maynooth University will host an online seminar on 'Gambling Policy and Regulation in Ireland: Catching up with the Digital Age?' on Wednesday 23 June, 1000-1300.

The seminar will feature an address from James Browne TD, Minister of State at the Department of Justice and Equality and an academic keynote from Professor Rebecca Cassidy (Goldsmiths University), author of Vicious Games: Capitalism and Gambling (Pluto Press, 2020). Further speakers yet to be announced. This will be followed by a discussion panel, including time for questions and answers.

The seminar will reflect on gambling in the digital age, examine public policy responses in Ireland, Northern Ireland and internationally to the changing gambling ecosystem, and reflect on our knowledge of gambling harms experienced by individuals, their families and communities.

We look forward to an engaging conversation about gambling and public policy and how the island of Ireland responds to the challenges posed by harmful gambling in the digital age.


This event is funded and supported by the Maynooth University Social Sciences Institute.

This event will be recorded and available to view at a later date.
