The Irish Network Against Racism (INAR) is a membership organisation. Our strength is in our Members, a growing, national Network of diverse Civil Society Organisations committed to combating racism and all related forms of discrimination in every sphere of life in Ireland.

STRATEGIC PLAN (2024 – 2028)


Our vision is of an equal, just and inclusive Ireland, free of racism.
INAR fights all forms of racism, supporting the collective voice of anti-racism, by providing analysis and tools to empower those experiencing racism to take action within society, in solidarity with all groups combating racism and all other related forms of oppression.


Intersectionality: We strive to ensure that issues affecting women, disabled people, members of LGBTQIA+ communities, older people, and people experiencing oppressions based on class and religious belief are at the heart of all our anti-racist analysis and actions. We recognise poverty and economic marginalisation as principal drivers of systemic racism.

People partnership is paramount to our work and we aim to work alongside minority ethnic groups and the organisations that represent their views, creating a strong voice for antiracism on this island.

Evidence-based & best practice methodologies are central to our work. We believe that generating good data on ethnicity is also the best way to monitor equality and equity of services and experience.

Our work is underpinned by the values of dignity, equality, equity and inclusion. We believe all people should feel they belong, have a voice, enjoy self-determination, and be equal in all ways.
