The ESRI has commenced a new two-year research programme on integration and equality with the Department of Justice and Equality. The aim of the programme is to create, improve and enhance knowledge on migrant integration and equality in order to provide evidence for policy in these areas. The programme will build on a considerable body of research on these issues by ESRI researchers.
The ESRI works towards a national vision of ‘Informed policy for a better Ireland’. This means producing high-quality analysis to provide robust evidence for policymaking, with the goals of research excellence and policy impact.
The ESRI produces research that contributes to understanding economic and social change in the new international context and that informs public policymaking and civil society in Ireland.
