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.
