Core competencies

The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) was founded in 1960 as the Economic Research Institute with the help of a grant from the Ford Foundation of New York. In 1966 the Institute assumed responsibility for social research and extended its title to the Economic and Social Research Institute. ESRI research has made a vital contribution to the Irish national debate on economic and social issues over the past 50 years.

The fundamental aim of the ESRI is to bring the latest thinking in economics and the social sciences to the actual and potential problems of Irish society. The ESRIs goals are academic excellence, objectivity, relevance to policy, and widespread dissemination of results.

The Institute is incorporated under Irish law as a not-for-profit private company limited by guarantee. Its members, both individual and corporate, represent a wide spectrum of Irish life. The ESRI enjoys full academic independence and is answerable ultimately to its own subscribing members, consisting of individuals and companies, which the Council of the Institute agrees to admit to membership. A Council elected by the members governs the Institute. The Council represents the social partners, government departments, state agencies, universities and other research institutes.

ESRI research covers a wide range of topics including:

• Energy and environmental economics
• Communications and transport
• Macroeconomics
• Competition and regulation
• Consumer demand analysis
• Social Disadvantage
• Industrial Development
• Regional Studies
• Education
• Health
• Labour Markets/Migration

Staff members publish extensively in a range of fora, including commissioned reports, the Institutes own publication series, books, academic journals and proceedings of conferences.
