Equality Studies is an inter-disciplinary study of significant equalities and inequalities in human life, both as it has been and as it might be. It addresses topics including patterns of inequality, explanations of inequality, principles of equality and equality objectives, egalitarian social, political and economic institutions and strategies for change.
Work in the Equality Studies Centre is currently concentrated in four main areas: development and global north/south relations, minorities and discrimination, gender, and class structures.
The Centre's main aims are to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of equality, to promote greater understanding and concern for equality both within Ireland and internationally and to undertake and promote research on equality issues.
In pursuit of these aims, the Centre is engaged in research into issues of equality and inequality, the provision of postgraduate programmes at Diploma, Masters, and PhD level and an outreach programme which works beyond the limits of the university.
