On 15 November, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland Philip R. Lane delivered the Annual Geary Lecture 2018 at the ESRI, titled Globalisation and the Irish Economy. Full text of the lecture is available HERE.
The lecture also included reference to the ESRI’s work, and Governor Lane’s own time as an ESRI Council member:
The Geary Lecture is also an occasion to reflect on the central role played by the ESRI in the analysis and formulation of economic and social policies in Ireland. During my time on the ESRI Council during 2009-2015, I gained a particular appreciation for the sustained scholarship undertaken by the ESRI, which is the home of so many long-term research programmes that are irreplaceable in terms of shaping our understanding of the forces driving economic and social development in Ireland.
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.
