Through our core work DSA Ireland builds research capacity in the development studies constituency in Ireland and supports a vibrant, dynamic community of researchers, practitioners and policy makers who are committed to change for the most vulnerable in low- and middle-income countries. Our main activities are key vehicles for us to:
- support cohesion and capacity-building in the development studies sector;
- promote strategic alliances and partnerships to grow the development studies sector;
- harness research which supports and promotes coherent evidence- based development policy and practice aimed at the reduction of global poverty, the enhancement of all forms of equality and respect for human rights.
