Welcome to DSA Ireland

Welcome to the Development Studies Association of Ireland (DSAI). The DSAI is Ireland's only association for researchers and practitioners working in the field of international development. 

While the annual conference is a principal focus for the association, the DSAI is active throughout the year through its many Study Groups. All those involved in development whether as teachers, researchers, consultants or practitioners, are welcome to join both the Study Groups and the DSAI itself.
