The Institute's Research Agenda
The research agenda of the Institute is broad, focusing on how changes to the structure of the state are impacting on the lives of citizens at every level from the local to the global. Thus, it seeks to bring Northern Ireland to the attention of international scholars and policy makers, and vice versa. Our core research values are academic rigour, interdisciplinarity, and making a positive contribution to the public policy agenda.

Linking fundamental and applied research
The Institute’s site within Northern Ireland both brings to Northern Ireland the opportunity to engage with issues at the cutting edge of research and allows the dissemination to others of some of the thinking in Northern Ireland that already has attracted international attention – for example, on conflict resolution and human rights and equality.
