Knowledge Exchange Seminar Series (KESS)

‘Promoting evidence-led policy and law-making within Northern Ireland’ – that is the underlying aim of the upcoming Knowledge Exchange Seminar Series (KESS),  collectively sponsored by the Queen’s University of Belfast, the University of Ulster and the Assembly’s Research and Information Service (RaISe).  In an attempt to encourage debate and improve understanding, the Series will provide an opportunity for the presentation of local research findings about diverse social issues faced in various sectors, such as health, social development, education, children/young people and older people.  

Research Publications

The Northern Ireland Assembly Research and Information Service produces a number of Research publications. These cover a variety of topics of interest to Members, Committees and the general public.

Deposited Papers

Deposited Papers are unpublished Papers placed in the Library at the direction of the Speaker or a Minister in the Executive. In most cases they provide information requested in an Assembly Question.

Constituency Profiles

The Northern Ireland Assembly Research and Information Service  produces profiles using the latest available statistics for each of the 18 Constituencies in Northern Ireland.  These updated reports include a demographic profile for each Constituency as well as key indicators of Health, Education, the Economy, Employment, Low Income, Crime and Traffic and Travel.

Consider this ... Research reflections for a new mandate

Consider this ... Research reflections for a new mandate - is a publication produced by the Assembly’s Research and Information Service (RaISe). It sets out a wide range of issues arising from the last Assembly mandate which may be of interest to both returning and newly elected Members. It is not intended to cover all outstanding matters or set any agenda. It is aimed instead at engaging Members with RaISe, which is an important resource available to Members and their staff to support the work that they do in the Assembly and in their constituencies.
