Research in the ESRI
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 is an independent research institute. We work to a rigorous peer review process, which ensures high academic standards are met. We are committed to publishing research, regardless of the findings or the source of funding.
The ESRI organises its research across 12 areas, listed below. Each area is headed by one or more senior researchers who coordinate its research activities. The research agenda is influenced by current policy issues, research expertise and available funding.
