Irish Institute of International & European Affairs blogs on our Campaign

The Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA) is Ireland’s leading think tank on European and International affairs and is an independent, not-for-profit organisation with charitable status.

It acts as a catalyst for new thinking, new solutions and policy options.
