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.
New ESRI research funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth finds that while non-Irish nationals as a whole earned 22 per cent less per hour than Irish nationals, East European workers earned, on average, 40 per cent less than Irish workers in the period 2011-2018
New research from the ESRI identifies key reasons for the marked increase in applications in Ireland in 2022 and finds that it is likely a confluence of several factors, including post-COVID-19 catch-up migration, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and conditions and conflict in countries of origin.
