Analysis of the New Communities Sector in Ireland

Jun 01, 2008
  • Description

This report was prepared for the One Foundation to present a snapshot of the 'New Communities' Sector in Ireland at the current time. For the purposes of this report, 'New Communities' refers to all those non-Irish people who have come to live in Ireland in recent years, for economic, educational, or protection reasons. The information was gathered for the report through a combination of consultation interviews and desk research. One of the biggest challenges of the research was obtaining sufficient data and statistics to give a complete and accurate picture of the numbers, locations, socio-economic status, and activities of the New Communities and this remains an ongoing challenge for the sector.
