Migration, Integration and Demography

Research examines the major forces that shape the population, including fertility, mortality and migration. A key research theme is the integration of migrants and their children. Work in this area incorporates research conducted by EMN Ireland, the national contact point for the European Migration Network. Their research provides objective, up-to-date and comparable statistics on migration and asylum.
