About Us

The Citizen is the new periodical of the Ireland Institute. Based in the Pearse Centre in Dublin, the Ireland Institute has been promoting the values of democratic republicanism through its lecture programmes and publications for a number of years. The Citizen is intended to provide a forum for analysis and debate of the issues facing Irish society today, and it will enable the Institute to develop its ongoing critique of political, economic, and social arrangements in Ireland and the world.

As well as critique and analysis, The Citizen will also try to look to the future and suggest ways forward towards a better society.

Throughout all of this work, republican ideas about active citizenship and the common good, freedom, equality, and solidarity will inform the argument and discussion.
