Department goals

We have identified six high-level goals to guide our work from 2023 to 2025 in our Statement of Strategy 2023-2025. These are as follows:

  1. Supporting peace and reconciliation at home
  2. Serving our communities
  3. Driving the European agenda
  4. Strengthening and protecting the global multilateral system
  5. Enhancing Ireland’s global engagement and prosperity
  6. Strengthening DFA’s effectiveness.

The preparation of the Statement of Strategy was informed by the core foreign policy statements The Global Island: Ireland’s Foreign Policy for a Changing World  and A Better World: Irelands Policy for International Development and involved a comprehensive process of internal and external consultation.
