    International Conference on Emigration at a Time of Austerity

    In recent years, Ireland has experienced a marked increase in emigration. The University College Cork project ‘Current Irish Emigration and Return’ (referred to as ‘Emigre’) aimed to discover why people are emigrating from Ireland today and discover what impact recent emigration is having on the Irish abroad and on the families and communities they have left behind them.  The project was carried out at the Department of Geography and in the Institute for Social Science in the 21st Century (ISS21) at University College Cork and is funded by the Irish Research Council. Some of the project results will be launched at an international conference on Emigration at a Time of Austerity to be held in UCC on 27th September.
