|Title:||Opening Statement to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice and Equality on the System of Direct Provision in Ireland||Authors:||Thornton, Liam||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10901||Date:||12-Jun-2019||Online since:||2019-07-12T09:19:10Z||Abstract:||I thank the committee for the invitation to discuss the system of direct provision in Ireland. I am an associate professor in UCD School of Law, and human rights legal obligations and the system of direct provision has been a topic of my published research for some time. I have provided the Committee with a full submission, and just wish to highlight some of my key recommendations which I invite the Committee to consider. These include recommendations on: better respecting and protecting the right to work; recognising direct provision as a gross violation on the rights of the child, and indeed all persons subjected to this system; increases to direct provision allowance/daily expenses allowance and the rights of aged-out separated children.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Houses of the Oireachtas||Start page:||1||End page:||4||Keywords:||Asylum Seekers; Direct Provision; Ireland||Other versions:||https://data.oireachtas.ie/ie/oireachtas/committee/dail/32/joint_committee_on_justice_and_equality/submissions/2019/2019-06-12_opening-statement-dr-liam-thornton-assistant-professor-sutherland-school-of-law-ucd_en.pdf||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Oireachtas Committee on Justice and Equality|
