Researching migration
Researching migration

  • Ad-hoc approach to research on migration

    • Civil society: often focuses on marginalised groups and on specific needs

    • Policy makers: consultant-led, short-term

    • Academic: longer-term, but little co-ordination

  • Lack of clarity in relation to governance

    • Junior Minister for Integration in three departments: Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs; Education and Science; Justice, Equality and Law Reform

    • Yet, labour migration managed by Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment




Future directions
Future directions

  • Assumption that recent migration is temporary, but no evidence to support this

    • Employment

    • Social welfare

    • Public services

    • Housing

  • Second generation

    • Education

    • Language

  • Need for a systematic approach to research on migration
