Opportunities for Engagement

 

Overview

Our faculty are frequently in demand in national and international media and act as consultants to the Irish Government and national and international bodies on matters of law and legal process, and of politics and government. They serve on the editorial boards of leading academic journals. They act as external evaluators for EU Framework Programmes and for research councils in several countries; and are embedded in the international research network for law and society, comparative politics and international relations (including development and security and conflict studies).

We participate in a number of Open Society Foundation initiatives including:

  • Central Asia and Caucasus Research and Training Initiative
  • Open Society Curriculum Development Initiative
  • Regional Seminar for Excellence in Teaching (ReSET). This develops the teaching capacity of university lecturers in social sciences and humanities in post-communist Eurasian countries.

We also work with UNIDEV Advisory Board (an EU-funded programme which links universities in Ireland, Slovakia and Greece on curriculum development in Development Education).

We give seminars on Contemporary Security challenges at the Irish Defence Forces Staff and Command College and on the Irish Naval Cadet training course.

We have also given lectures/seminars to MA students of the Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution (NMCPCR), in the Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi, India
