TASC is an independent think-tank whose core focus is addressing economic inequality. Its mission is to produce policy analysis and present evidence-based proposals for the achievement of a more equal, flourishing society with accountable government and strong, responsible public engagement. TASC's work focuses in particular on proposals to reduce Ireland’s high and persistent level of economic inequality and to develop the genuine participation of people in decisions that affect themselves and their society, as well as an overall commitment to promote social equality and non-discrimination including the nine grounds in the Equal Status Acts 2000-2011.

TASC's major outputs include an annual Inequality Report; ongoing research on working conditions in Ireland; regular analysis of key aspects of economic and social policy; projects to foster government transparency throughout the EU; development of best practices for deliberative democracy forums; a Toolkit for Open Government; and an Annual Conference, held in association with the Brussels think tank, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS).
