ABOUT INAR

IRISH NETWORK AGAINST RACISM

INAR (Irish Network Against Racism) is a national network of anti-racism civil society organisations which aims to work collectively to highlight and address the issue of racism in Ireland through the promotion and monitoring of EU and global anti-racist initiatives.

The INAR is in turn an active member of the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) based in Brussels, a network of 160 organisations from 30 European States, with its secretariat in Brussels. INAR actively collaborates with the ENAR to coordinate research initiatives, campaigns and mobilisations, bringing a European dimension to Ireland and vice-versa. .

The membership of INAR is open to all civil society groups and organisations committed to diversity, equality and combating racism in Ireland. See how to join our Network.
