Immigration and housing in the Republic of Ireland

This chapter describes the background to and objectives of this book and its location within a body of well-developed social sciences literature. Of particular importance to the Irish case, is the view that across Europe and other western countries, migrants’ housing conditions and housing market options are generally worse than for natives. In this book, then, the critical challenge is to identify and explain what constitutes migrants’ housing experiences in Ireland and how these relate to salient debates internationally. To this end, this chapter introduces the concept of the ‘housing pathway approach’, which serves as the conceptual underpinning to the analysis conducted in the remaining chapters. It provides a discussion of increased ethnic and cultural diversity in Ireland and provides an overview of relevant immigration and housing policies. It also provides a breakdown of landlord and tenants in Ireland, and outlines migrants’ access rights to housing in Ireland and a description of the migrants interviewed for this book.
