This is the third in a series of annual Integration Monitors that measure migrant integration in four life domains: employment, education, social inclusion and active citizenship. The core indicators closely follow those proposed in the Zaragoza Declaration: they are comparable across European Union Member States, based on existing data and focused on outcomes. Most indicators are derived from the latest available survey data and compare outcomes for Irish and migrant populations in each domain.
This report also contains a special theme: ‘Changing Irish Attitudes to Immigrants’, which is based on original analysis of data from the European Social Survey.
The 2012 report shows rapid increase in Irish citizenship acquisition among immigrants and that Irish attitudes to immigrants have become more negative.
