The Institute for Research in Social Sciences seeks to harness and develop the highest quality research undertaken in the Faculty of Social Sciences within the broad areas of social and public policy with social work, education, politics and international studies. It provides an institutional framework for undertaking high quality research and for the development of a vibrant research culture through organising seminars, colloquia and lectures, funding participation by Institute members in national and international conferences and a forum for engaging with policy makers and those involved with service delivery in the public and voluntary sectors.
