Edurne Garcia's research interests focus on the social inclusion of people with disabilities, particularly on the areas of education and community living and on the intersection between disability and poverty, ethnic minority background and migrant status. A methodological interest underpinning the above themes is the development and implementation of participatory research approaches with people with intellectual disabilities. Currently, she is the lead researcher of the project IDEM (2017-2019), which explores the intersection between disability, ethnicity and migration in Ireland. She is also the TCD coordinator for Inclute (2016-2019), an Erasmus + project aiming at developing inclusive education in China. Since 2009, Edurne has been an academic supporter of the Inclusive Research Network, a group of people with intellectual disabilities and their supporters who conduct research relevant to people with intellectual disabilities in Ireland. She coordinated the development of DARAT, the Trinity Disability Accessible Research Archive, which seeks to increase the accessibility of research outputs at TCD. Edurne is a member of the research group Social Inclusion and Disability at the University Autónoma of Barcelona and a member of the experts committee for the project ARCHES, a Horizon 2020 project seeking to increase the accessibility of cultural heritage sites. Edurne has published articles and book chapters about the above topics and she is the lead co-editor of a Disability Studies textbook "Disability and Human Rights: Global Perspectives" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016).
