Attitudes to Diversity in Ireland

This research report entitled “Attitudes to Diversity in Ireland” is published jointly by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission and the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) and looks at Ireland’s increasing diversity and monitors attitudes for the period from 2002-2014. The results for Ireland are also compared with averages from ten other Western European states

The work draws on a survey of attitudes from the European Social Survey . It has found that the attitudes of Irish-born people to immigrants and immigration vary significantly over time, depending on the ethnicity of the migrants, on respondents’ education and financial security, and on the level of individual contact people have with those from different ethnic backgrounds.

The report Attitudes to Diversity in Ireland was prepared for the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission by the Economic and Social Research Institute as part of the Research Programme on Human Rights and Equality.
