Ireland’s unique suite of postgraduate offerings in the broad sphere of international relations (peace and conflict studies, human rights, gender, development, social activism, migration & diaspora and ethnicity to name but a few) provide an internationally renowned start to careers which influence the global agenda.
From past presidents to rock stars, Ireland’s outspoken voices reflect a past of colonisation and famine - and a present as a global thought leader in conflict resolution, human rights and development.
No country can choose its history or its geographic location. Ireland’s past and its position on the planet provide a inimitable lens to view the world, attracting researchers, visiting lecturers, academics, students, and practitioners from around the globe, who seek a frame of reference that is different from their own. Our centres of excellence in these fields have real credibility – academically and in practice.
