Institute for International Integration Studies
The Institute for International Integration Studies was established in 2002 to promote research and learning about the many dimensions of global and European integration, its dynamics, impacts and governance. It brings together researchers and postgraduate students from different departments and has an interdisciplinary focus.
Sociology staff and students are particularly involved in the Migration stream of the IIIS, with Dr Antje Röder and Dr Daniel Faas acting as flagship leaders together with Prof John O'Hagan from the Department of Economics and Merike Darmody from the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI). Currently, the IIIS hosts the NORFACE funded SCIP – Causes and Consequences of Early Socio-Cultural Integration Processes among New Immigrants in Europe project (Principal Investigators: Dr Peter Mühlau and Dr Frances McGinnity, ESRI) and the IRC funded 'Learning from Poland - The implications of Polish migration to Ireland for contemporary Irish emigration' project (Principal Investigator: Prof James Wickham). Other recent large scale projects in this area include the Trinity Immigration Initiative, which involved three Sociology staff as Principal Investigators: Prof James Wickham for 'Migrant Careers and Aspirations', Dr Ronit Lentin for 'Migrant Networks – Facilitating Migrants Integration' and Dr Peter Mühlau for 'Parallel Societies or Overlapping Identities'.
