Article
This book examines the treatment of cultural and religious diversity - indigenous and immigrant - on both sides of the Irish border in order to analyse the current state of tolerance, and the kinds of policies that may support integration while respecting diversity. While it is sometimes argued that in contemporary societies we need to go ‘beyond t...

This article addresses the puzzle of why Ireland has proved so open to immigration. It compares responses to immigrants in the Republic of Ireland during the Celtic Tiger era and during the post-2008 economic crisis and finds no evidence of a political backlash during the latter period even though opinion polls suggest that opposition to immigratio...
Article
Poles constitute the largest immigrant community in the Republic of Ireland and, according to the 2011 census, more than 2.5 per cent of its population. Polish has become the country's second most commonly spoken language. Notwithstanding efforts by immigrant organisations, most notably Forum Polonia, and efforts by Polish candidates to contest loc...
Article
David Cameron’s ‘Big Society’ agenda is best understood in terms of ideological and policy continuities with earlier Conservative and New Labour governments. But where previous post-1979 governments have sought to renegotiate the role of the state mostly through privatisations and marketisations of public services, the ‘Big Society’ agenda also pro...

Background A meta-analysis of published data was conducted to investigate the overall risks of hypertension and QTc prolongation in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who were receiving vandetanib. Methods A computerized search through electronic databases, including PubMed and Embase (until Dec 2014), was performed to obtain...
Article
This paper locates responses to the 2011 Tottenham riots within a historical analysis of planning, regeneration and the politics of community participation in the London Borough of Haringey. It examines understandings of the role of such participation and related recommendations within three 2012 reports: North London Citizens, an alliance of mostl...
Article
Full-text available
This article draws on survey data on child, family and neighbourhood well-being in the Republic of Ireland to examine the nature and extent of immigrant social inclusion. Focusing in particular on results for an area known as ‘the Liberties’ in Dublin, in which immigrants are overly represented, the article specifically examines: (1) the relationsh...
Article
Full-text available
In the space of around ten years Ireland went from being a traditional labour exporter to a leading European economy, and thus an attractive destination for immigrants from Eastern Europe and further afield. This produced a singular social laboratory, which this book explores in all its complexity set against the backdrop of globalization. Until re...
Article
This book uses the London Borough of Haringey case study as a lens through which to explore the evolution of theoretical and policy debates about the relationship between local institutions and the communities they serve. It focuses on policy areas of planning and regeneration. It provides concrete examples of the ways in which shifting academic de...
Chapter
This chapter draws on extensive survey data on child, family and neighbourhood well-being in the Republic of Ireland (hereafter Ireland) to examine the nature and extent of immigrant social exclusion. Social inclusion, hitherto defined in terms of income and employment, increasingly is defined in terms of well-being and social capital and as such,...
Article
High levels of immigration to Ireland have left an impact on the economy and society, but arguably less of an impact on politics. Though immigration has been an issue in party politics and the subject of a controversial referendum, the immigrants themselves have had little direct impact on parties or the political system. This article treats the im...
Article
Recent waves of new immigration distinct from postcolonial-era migrations can be identified in many Western countries. More than 40 such “new immigrant” candidates contested the 2009 local government elections in the Republic of Ireland. This article draws on interviews with just under half of these and on official responses from each of the Republ...
Article
Full-text available
Richard Rorty’s muscular liberalism and pragmatic intolerance draw sustenance from Nietzsche as well as from the earlier American pragmatists. We set out the ways in which Rorty adopts and adapts their ideas. We go on to suggest that the cultural ethnocentrism that he advocates carries certain risks, and can be divorced all too easily from his own...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research on the impact of immigration on urban socio-spatial inequalities has focused on cities with long immigration histories where successive waves of new arrivals impacted on segregation patterns established by preceding waves, usually in a context where immigrants in each wave were poor and had low education. This paper focuses on Dub...
Article
This article makes the case for improved small area data on socio-spatial segregation and social exclusion in Ireland that is comprehensively disaggregated by nationality and ethnicity. We argue that disaggregated data are crucial if the complex effects of immigration are to be understood and effective policy developed. This article examines two ca...
Article
Full-text available
As increasing numbers of researchers and policy-makers in government, non- governmental organisations and academia begin to urgently explore the question of 'integration' of migrants in Ireland, Translocations will seek to reflect, encourage and develop these debates. If we accept that the relationships between migration, racism and integration are...
Article
The most significant event in the politics of immigration in the Republic of Ireland has been the 2004 Referendum that removed 'jus soli' constitutional rights to citizenship from Irish born children of immigrants. Constitutional definitions of Irishness narrowed at a time when the composition of Irish society had broadened significantly through im...

This paper evaluates responses to asylum seeker children in Ireland from a child poverty perspective and from that of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It draws upon research undertaken in early 2001 on behalf of the Irish Refugee Council among asylum seeker families with children in Cork, Limerick and Ennis on their experie...

Interviews were conducted with 43 households. In addition a number of group interviews were held with asylum-seeking children and asylum seeker parents. The res...

Migration scholars such as Stephen Castles now recognise that labour is a key element in migration, from a labour studies perspective we also need to bring migration into the study of the working class. Trade unions have a key role to play in making migration a positive factor in the making of a new global working class.
