Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The Employment Research Institute of Edinburgh Napier University was commissioned to carry out research on employment inequalities in Northern Ireland on behalf of the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland. The motivation for the research is to inform the work of the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland in updating the 2007 Statement on Key Inequalities in Northern Ireland, which identified employment as one of the areas where inequalities exist and need to be addressed. The work investigates inequalities in employment across the nine equality grounds defined in Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998: gender, age, religious belief, political opinion, racial group, disability, sexual orientation, marital status and dependant status.
