The European Federation of Associations and Centres of Irish Studies (EFACIS) was founded to promote interest in and support the expansion of Irish Studies throughout Europe. Our focus is the study and debate of all aspects of society, culture and literature of the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, and the Irish diaspora within the humanities and social sciences. EFACIS encourages as wide a range of organisations as possible to raise the profile of the subject area, to enhance the participation levels in Irish Studies and to further contacts between those involved in Irish Studies in the region.
EFACIS also organises the Irish Itinerary, an Irish cultural tour of Europe. More information on this programme can be found on the Irish Itinerary website.
EFACIS is supported by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
