ICR’s research work is based on an academic rigour, but is primarily focused on influencing policy and practice. Out work includes projects that we have initiated ourselves, research that we have been specifically commissioned to undertake, and work that we compete for under a tendering process.
ICR works with community groups, statutory service providers and local government to create and deliver training and community development programmes designed specifically to address the individual needs of local organisations and those from overseas interested in the Northern Ireland conflict transformation process.
