Projects

  • Title
    • Deskilling among 'new' EU migrants in Dublin
  • Summary
    • This research project investigates the social phenomenon of deskilling amongst EU nationals living and working in Dublin. In particular, it will examine the experiences of highly educated EU nationals who work in employment positions below their educational qualifications.

  • Title
    • EU mobiles social rights during the Covid-19 pandemic in Ireland
  • Summary
    • Since European enlargement in 2004, 'new' EU nationals have lived, worked and planned for their futures in a variety of employment sectors in the Irish labour market. With this award I seek to examine new EU nationals' perceptions, experiences and aspirations of their social security across that time and particularly in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. This award will enable me to examine how the Covid-19 pandemic impacted on both the institutional response to intra EU mobility and new EU nationals experiences of accessing their social welfare entitlements in Ireland. Specifically, I will be able to analyse patterns of social welfare transfers (retirement, unemployment, child benefit etc) longitudinally (2004-2021). Importantly, I will conduct 40 qualitative interviews with new EU nationals who have lived and worked in Ireland with specific reference to their experiences of accessing and/or transferring welfare entitlements at a national and intra European level during the Covid 19 context.

  • Summary
    • This research entailed a European wide analysis of the regulations governing the portability of social protections (unemployment, illness, carers, child benefit). In particular it examined the tensions between EU directives guaranteeing equal protections between member state nationals and national welfare implementation systems which engaged in selective 'restrictive' policies in response to EU accessions during the 2000s.

  • Summary
    • This project is a follow up to the Migrant Careers and Aspirations (2007-2010). The project re-interviewed the original panel of young Poles who came to Ireland to work in the Irish labour market during the boom. It also developed a new panel of young Irish graduate emigrants during the recession. It researched whether novel forms of migrant careers exist within the European and transnational mobility space, the impact on migrants' careers of two different conjunctures (bubble and recession). Finally it examined the lasting consequences for Irish employment regulation of the periods of mass immigration and mass emigration.

  • Title
    • Migrant and Employer Strategies post Brexit in an All Ireland economy
  • Summary
    • On 1 January 2021 as part of the UK's withdrawal from the European Union, commonly known as Brexit, free movement rights ended for EU nationals travelling to the UK including Northern Ireland. A key issue that has emerged due to Brexit is the disruption of the labour market between the two jurisdictions which runs contrary to aspirations for an all-island economy. The principal goal of the Migrant and Employer Strategies post Brexit in an all-island economy Project (MES-AIE) is to provide a detailed analysis of the experiences, intentions and strategies of EU nationals and employers in Ireland and Northern Ireland, who have been impacted by the UK's change in immigration policy precipitated by Brexit. Specifically, this research will seek to understand how immigration policy impacts on EU migrant workers decisions to migrate, settle or leave and employers enterprise level decisions around recruitment of nationalities, types and skills of workers. Utilising a qualitative panel research approach, the MES-AIE will reveal the dynamic nature of the all-island labour market needs and aspirations within this changed regulatory context. The project will conduct sector based quantitative analysis of LFS data, track a sample of EU nationals across time and space as they negotiate the new regulatory environment and conduct a sample of case studies of employers of differing types impacted by the changing regulations. The research process and findings will be hosted on a designated webpage and disseminated through workshops, seminars, 4 employment sector reports and 3 quality journal articles. By working collaboratively, the MES-AIE will enhance the capacity of the PIs to contribute to policy development relevant to the Shared Island Initiative benefitting enterprise and communities, north and south and capitalize on the 20th anniversary of the 2004 enlargement of the EU through engaging with EU, North-South and East-West bodies.

  • Title
    • Irish Women in Europe
  • Summary
    • The principal goal of the Irish Women in Europe Project is to explore and heighten awareness of the invisibility of women and family migration in discourses and representations of migration and their role in building Europe. Recovering and promoting histories, experiences, stories of Irish female migration from diverse communities and traditions (North and South) to destinations across Europe creates opportunities to reimagine women's narratives as agents in the construction and reconstruction of Europe over time (16th-21st centuries). The project suggests a multidimensional interpretation of migration dynamics and tackles migration in a long perspective to highlight consistencies and exceptions in Irish historic migration patterns. This will reveal the local idiosyncrasies and challenge global narratives on female migration. Irish Women on the Move in Europe will create a repository of sources on Irish women in Europe and organise workshops to dialogue with academics, museum curators and policy makers. The project will organize a website and workshops to reach out to the public on Irish women's presence in European migration history. Ireland has entered a time of reflection on its future, given the decision by the UK to leave the European Union and the changing status of Europeans and citizens across the island. The timing of this project will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the 2004 enlargement of the European Union. Ireland and Northern Ireland's recent demographic changes have highlighted the growing relationships between European nationals and Ireland, North and South.
