Border Ireland is an online searchable database of cross-border information produced by EU-funded programmes, government departments, academic researchers and other key information providers in Ireland, North and South. The information on this website is a subset of the complete dataset held on a storage database within the Centre for Cross Border Studies.
In its early years of existence the Centre for Cross Border Studies has developed a high quality, reputable programme of cross-border research and dissemination.
The Centre initiated Border Ireland to centralise the very large amount of uncoordinated and fragmented information about the Irish border region and cross-border co-operation.
By bridging the information gap, improving information availability and facilitating a network of cross-border, cross-community and cross-sectoral relationships, the development and use of Border Ireland will ensure that cross-border decisions within the public and the private sector are developed on the basis of sound information.
