Migrants and the Irish Economy

Download File


This report provides an analysis of the many benefits migrants bring to the Irish Economy. Key arguments in the report include that without the launguages and skills provided by migrants the multinational sector in Ireland would not be nearly as strong, and also that there is little evidence of welfare tourism or abuse. These alongside a number of recommendations provide a useful guide for the better integration of immigrants in Ireland.
