Abstract: The European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia has commissioned the ESRI to conduct a survey of migrants' experiences of racism and discrimination in Ireland and report on the results. The survey will complement existing surveys in a number of other European countries. The survey will focus on four groups of migrants who have come to Ireland in the last 3 years: Africans, Arabs, Asians and Central/ East Europeans. Professor Gerry Hughes and Emma Quinn, the Irish members of the European Migration Network, have an advisory role in this project.
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.
