As you may have already guessed by now, my name is Jason Deegan. I’m currently a Master of Public Policy Student in University College Dublin, and I work as the Marketing Officer for Co-operative Housing Ireland.
I write across a number of areas, but I’m mostly interested in policy (specifically; innovation, labour, housing and economic policymaking more generally) and I focus a lot also on trying to lend my hand to solving problems and helping to develop a more nuanced view of the world.
When I was 21 I was involved in the establishment of an International Youth-Focused anti-corruption organisation (Anti Corruption International – if you are interested in checking out our work). I also recently completed an academic paper focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and their use of twitter for Identity creation, which was published with the Irish Communications Review journal (if you are interested you can find the paper here)
Currently, I am aiming to complete my masters degree by the summer of 2019, I am also working on another paper which is focused on Ballot Initiatives and the development of labor policy in the United States.
If you are interested in discussing any of my previous work, or working together on projects in the future don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
