Groupement d'intérêt Scientifique (GIS)

E.I.R.E. : Etudes Irlandaises : Réseaux et Enjeux


A GIS is a university-based “scientific interest group”. It is a flexible research structure that allows universities to work together on targeted projects. It brings together researchers who are also affiliated with existing research units in French universities and abroad. GIS EIRE was created in January 2019 on the initiative on SOFEIR (French Society for Irish Studies), a learned society and an associative structure.

The GIS EIRE research programme, which is entering its second phase, (2023-25) will focus on three main areas of study:

Strand 1: repositioning Ireland in the World. This will include aspects of Ireland’s history, foreign policy and diplomacy, the Irish economy, the role of non-states actors such as the Irish diaspora, Ireland’s soft power.

Contacts: Anne Groutel, Université Paris 1 ( and Grainne O’Keeffe-Vigneron, Université Rennes 2 (

Strand 2: human rights issues integrating a reflection on experiments in participatory democracy (Citizens’ Assemblies). Addressing issues such as the housing crisis, reconfiguring the political landscape (North and South) and questions of bodily autonomy and carceral state(s).

Strand 3: ecology and the environmentSEEDS : Sensory Ecologies and Environmental Dialogues in Ireland. Creation and preservation of corpus for researchers and students working on the links between agro-ecology and literature and the arts in Ireland.
