The ESRI has commenced a two-year research programme on human rights and equality with the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC). The aim of the programme is to provide evidence for equality and human rights monitoring and for the development of policy in the area of equality and human rights. The research will address equality and discrimination across the grounds covered by equality legislation (e.g. gender, disability, age, race/ethnicity/nationality) and human rights, with a particular focus on economic, social and cultural rights. The programme will build on a considerable body of research on equality and discrimination issues by ESRI researchers.
