Action Research

One of ICLRD’s primary activities is applied research into the social, economic and environmental dimensions of spatial planning, reconciliation and community regeneration and inter-regional and cross-border co-operation. ICLRD’s research brings together universities, government and community groups to address the spatial aspects of peace and reconciliation at three scales: the EU regional which includes cross-border and cooperation among local councils on each side of the border; the island of Ireland; and local with a particular focus on encouraging communities to take a proactive role in creating a stable society.   To see all of ICLRD papers and publications, including its research reports, click here.
