Synopsis: Further information about the Assembly's Research and Information Service (RaISe)

The Assembly's Research and Information Service (RaISe) aims to meet the information needs of the Assembly Members, their staff and the secretariat in an impartial, objective, timely and non-partisan manner. It employs subject specialists and library professionals to provide research and information support across the range of Assembly business areas.

RaISe has produced a publication for the 2016-21 mandate called Consider this .... Research reflections for the 2016-2021 mandate (4mb).   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.

RaISe has developed a new Blog - Research Matters.  This blog provides short, topical articles primarily for MLAs and their support staff, but also for a wider audience.
