Abstract: The objective of the programme is to undertake and disseminate research on issues surrounding low pay in Ireland. A forthcoming study, funded under this programme, will consider the international evidence of sub-minimum wage rates for young people.
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.
