adminLeave a Comment

By interviewing young people who have emigrated to the UK and to Canada about their experience, the study explores:

  1. Where are Irish youth emigrating to and why?
  2. How are they settling into life in their host country?
  3. What are the challenges they have encountered on this journey?
  4. What supports would have made their move easier?
  5. Do they envisage returning home in the next 5 years if the economy improves?
