Institute for British-Irish Studies

The Institute for British-Irish Studies (IBIS) has recently renovated  its web site. Providing the latest information on the Institutes  activities, updating the extensive list of resources for researchers  and initiating a registration facility for those who want to be kept  informed of the Institute's activities.

The Institute welcomes links to its site and is always glad to  hear of new resources which are relevant to the general  field of British-Irish Studies.

The IBIS is an interdisciplinary resource founded in 1999 and based  in the Department of Politics at University College Dublin.

The aims of the Institute are:

to  promote and conduct academic research in the area of relations between the two major traditions on the island of Ireland, and  between Ireland and Great Britain, from an inter-disciplinary social  science perspective

to  promote and encourage collaboration with academic bodies and with individual researchers elsewhere who share an interest in the exploration of relations between different national, ethnic or racial groups

to  promote contact with policy makers and opinion formers outside the university sector, and to ensure a free flow of ideas between the academic and the non-academic  worlds.

The Institute organises conferences, an annual lecture series, seminars on work in progress and occasional guest lectures. Through these events, the Institute provides a platform for academics, politicians and public servants to share their knowledge and experience with each other and with the wider public.
