|Title:||International Protection System & Direct Provision in Ireland||Authors:||Thornton, Liam||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11463||Date:||4-Dec-2019||Online since:||2020-08-07T16:02:26Z||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.||Funding Details:||University College Dublin||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||United Nations||Keywords:||Ireland; International protection; Direct provision||Other versions:||https://tbinternet.ohchr.org/_layouts/15/treatybodyexternal/SessionDetails1.aspx?SessionID=1338&Lang=en||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Palais Wilson, Geneva, 04 December 2019|
