Supporting Independent Research
You can support research into policy issues affecting Ireland, both nationally and internationally by becoming a member of the ESRI. The income from membership contributions is essential to the continuation of the ESRI's work.
As an independent think tank, the ESRI depends on income from
- commissioned research & consultancy;
- membership contributions;
- corporate sponsorship;
- sale of publications.
While the Institute receives some guaranteed financial assistance from the Irish government by way of grant in aid, this covers only 30% of its costs.
Our publications include the Quarterly Economic Commentary and Medium Term Review of the Irish Economy, online research reports and publications in a wide range of academic journals.
ESRI members receive a copy of the Annual Report and Review of Research, the Quarterly Economic Commentary and Medium Term Review (both online on the day or publication with a hard copy as soon as available) and are invited to attend the Institute's Annual General Meeting.
