About Trinity MERC
The Trinity Migration and Employment Research Centre (TMERC) is a group of researchers at Trinity College Dublin with research interests in migration and employment policies, trends, experiences and outcomes in Ireland and Europe. Formerly known as Employment Research Centre (ERC), we have a long history of nationally and European funded research on employment in Ireland and beyond. More recently, our increased focus on mobility and migration has led to the renaming of the centre to recognise the importance of these issues in our research and Irish society more generally. More »
