Library

A full library of over two decades worth of IER briefings, consultation responses, seminar papers and publications.

The contents of our library can be searched and filtered below. It includes free resources such as briefings, consultation responses, seminar papers and some full publications. For some publications we ask for a small contribution, which is significantly subsidised for trade union members.

Recent publications can be purchased in both hard copy and electronic formats. Older, out-of-print publications can be purchased at low cost electronically.
