A new report by the Economic Social and Research Institute (ESRI) is set to examine the residential markets in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England, with a particular focus on their capacity to increase housing supply over the short to medium term.
The report entitled ‘Contrasting Housing Supply in Ireland, Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom’ compares and contrasts how differences across the housing markets in key costs of production, the regulatory environment, and economic dynamics have impacted the supply of housing in the different markets.
The research is part of a joint research programme between the Department of the Taoiseach Shared Island Unit and the ESRI on the economic and social opportunities from increased cooperation on the Shared Island.
Registration starts at 10.30am, with welcome address by Prof Alan Barrett, ESRI Director, to be followed by an overview of the report by Prof Kieran McQuinn, ESRI. A Q&A session and a panel discussion will take place before the close and light lunch starts before 1pm.
