Abstract: INAR expresses significant concern around Ireland’s system of reception for asylum seekers known as direct provision. INAR notes that asylum seekers are accommodated in communal centres, at times away and apart from local host communities. INAR echoes the calls of the former Special Rapporteur on Children and the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission on the need to move away from the system of direct provision. The Irish government must begin planning for a reception system for asylum seekers that respects privacy, autonomy and does not segregate persons of minority ethnicities within communal accommodation centres.
