  • About the Industrial Relations Research Trust
    will be on a sound financial footing from its foundation Together with the support of Trinity College Dublin you are initiating a really worthwhile and far sighted venture And you have also achieved this without direct State funding Research not only creates new products but new insights and potential solutions This is particularly true in the case of the social sciences and policy making including the field of industrial relations and human resources We need greater understanding of the dynamics of the labour market and of the best practices in human resource management To get a flexible knowledge driven workforce we need a steady stream of fresh insights and analysis Against this background the new Trust is likely to have a lot of areas of interest from which to choose There are many important questions that we need to address in the coming months where good quality and timely research could add real value to the debate I see the Trust s research work as being directly relevant to a range of interested parties including employers trade unions Social Partners and academics The proposed real time nature of your work will ensure also that you provide an important input for economists policy makers public representatives and officials I wish you every success with your work Chairperson Mary Keating Speech by Ms Mary Keating Chair at the launch of the INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS RESEARCH TRUST House of Lords College Green Dublin 2 November 23rd 2005 Ladies and gentleman Guests and friends On behalf of the Trustees of the Industrial Relations Research Trust I am delighted to welcome An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern TD our Founding Sponsors and all our guests to the Trust launch this evening Taoiseach we all know your long term involvement and deep interest in industrial relations and your presence this evening is very much appreciated When the idea of a Trust was first mooted it involved a small group of deeply interested people who were keen to ensure that we find a way to invest in a deeper and better understanding the subject so that the practice gets better Industrial relations may by some be viewed as the preserve of a narrow set of interests and perhaps something of an anachronism in the modern economy It is far from the truth and the establishment of this Trust is a measure of the importance of the issue in the shaping and progress of our economy today Near full employment and a buoyant economy in a global and multicultural environment has not eliminated the issues that have always formed the nucleus of industrial relations debate negotiation and sometimes dispute The environment has changed but the issues remain and so we are more than ever challenged to understand and respond more effectively Industrial Relations is a vibrant multi disciplinary field which intersects business economics law psychology and sociology This diversity is reflected in the backgrounds of the Trustees who represent both sides of industry researchers academics policy makers lawyers and solution finders
