The Trinity Immigration Initiative (TII) brought together key strands of Trinity College Dublin’s research in order to support the development of a more inclusive, multicultural Ireland. A key initiative in the TII was a major Research Programme on Diversity, Integration and Policy. This programme was designed to stimulate a quantum leap in research activity in relation to immigration, helping to generate evidence relevant to local and national policy and contributing to international debates and the development of international practice. The programme was a unique and multidisciplinary suite of six interlocking projects which aimed to:
- address key challenges posed by the unprecedented numbers of migrants arriving in Ireland, and
- help Irish society develop appropriate policies and practices for the new reality.
