This blog provides an opportunity for the Northern Ireland Assembly Research and Information Service (RaISe) to produce short, topical articles in an accessible format, primarily for MLAs and their support staff, but also for a wider audience.

RaISe employs subject specialists and library professionals to provide research and information in support of Assembly business. We produce written and oral briefings in an objective, non-partisan and accurate manner.

You can find out more about our work by visiting the RaISe pages on the Northern Ireland Assembly Website.
