Irish National Organisation of the Unemployed

The Irish National Organisation of the Unemployed (INOU) are seeking to hire a researcher for a project entitled “The impact of stigma on unemployed people exercising their socio-economic rights”.

This project is funded by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) Grants Scheme 2021-2022 under the funding strand “advancing social and economic rights and equality”.

The overall aim of the project will be to research and document the impact of the stigma associated with unemployment on people’s ability to exercise their social and economic rights including access to social protection, education, training, and employment supports, and the securing of decent work.

The key objectives of the project are to:

  • undertake research with people who are unemployed and explore in depth the impact of the stigma associated with unemployment on their lives.
  • increase awareness and understanding of this reality and its impact.
  • bring to people’s attention that accessing social protection, education, training, and employment supports, and decent work are key existing rights they have and could exercise.
  • explore with people providing supports and services to unemployed people the impact of stigma on people’s ability to engage and exercise their rights.
  • explore with duty bearers the impact of stigma on unemployed people and how duty bearers could address this issue constructively to support people to exercise their socio-economic rights.

The project is aimed at people who are unemployed, community based organisations who provide supports and services to unemployed people and the Department of Social Protection who has lead responsibility for income supports and activation services for unemployed people.

The INOU works at the local and national level on issues affecting unemployed people through the provision of training and welfare rights information services; analysis of Government policies and related advocacy work; and working with a wide range of other organisations on issues of common concern.
