DSA Ireland

Vision

The vision of DSA Ireland is the creation of a vibrant and innovative development studies community, which will focus on cutting edge research, led by Irish research institutions, contributing to the reduction of poverty, inequality and vulnerability in the world.

Our Mission

The mission of DSA Ireland is to provide a national platform, which provides an open and participatory space for dialogue between researchers, policy-makers and practitioners, who have an interest in, or are working in the area of international development. We do this by:

  • supporting cohesion and capacity-building in the development studies sector;
  • promoting strategic alliances and partnerships to grow the development studies sector;
  • harnessing 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.
