Welcome to the site of the Irish Association for Russian, Central and East European Studies, IARCEES. This site provides information about the Association's background and current activities, membership and publications.

The principal activities of the Association are organising an annual conference and publishing the biennial Irish Slavonic Studies. Regular updates concerning the annual conference and other Association affairs are also posted on our Facebook page.

We aim to expand our range of activities and to develop our Association as a forum for anyone with an interest in Russia, Central and Eastern Europe, and welcome any suggestions and ideas.

Belfast account

Please note that following the recent sign-over of accounts after the AGM, we were advised that bank charges have increased drastically. Given that our Belfast account has been close to dormant in the last ten years or more, the Executive Committee took the decision to close that account in order not to deplete funds further, which has now happened. Please make all future payments into the Dublin account. We have also now set up a PayPal facility which will be available on this site shortly.
