Teachers from Ireland

In the years since the collapse of the Celtic Tiger economy there has been a significant increase in Irish migration to Britain. However, little is known about the experiences of these post-tiger, post-peace agreement migrants. How might their experiences differ from earlier waves of Irish migrants to Britain?
In an attempt to gain a deeper insight into the experiences of migrants who have arrived in Britain since 2008, a study is to be carried out by the Social Policy Research Centre at Middlesex University, in partnership with the Federation of Irish Societies. The study will focus on teachers and will be directed by Professor Louise Ryan. There is preliminary information and a brief interview with her at http://leftcentral.org.uk/2013/05/20/ireland-the-land-of-scholars/#more-3422.
