The scheme is a collaborative project between the RIA and the Houses of the Oireachtas to enable expert research on a range of AHSS and STEM themes to positively impact in the political sphere. Three colleagues from Geography have been chosen for the scheme: Dr Marie Mahon and Dr Maura Farrell will be working with Deputy Declan Breathnach and Deputy Fiona O’Loughlin on the topic of rural sustainability; and Dr John Morrissey will be working with Senator Ivana Bacik on human security and Ireland’s international development policy.
