Tasc (Think tank for Action on Social Change) [1] is an Irish left wing think tank.[2] It was established in 2001. Its mission statement describes it as "dedicated to combating Ireland’s high level of economic inequality and ensuring that public policy has equality at its core." [3]

Its work draws on and is supported by an extensive Economists' Network.[4]

It has been associated with members of the Labour Party and Sinn Féin[citation needed]. The Phoenix magazine described the group as "on the left fringes of the Labour Party."[5]
