|Title:||Clashing Interpretations of EU Rights in Domestic Courts||Authors:||Thornton, Liam||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11523||Date:||30-Jun-2020||Online since:||2020-09-01T11:07:17Z||Abstract:||This article explores Ireland's compliance with European Union law as it pertains to the right to work for asylum seekers. The introduction of the European Communities (Reception Conditions) Regulations 2018 sought to differentiate freedom to work for protection applicants in the substantive status determination process, and protection applicants subject to an un-executed Dublin transfer order. This article highlights the conflict in interpretation of Irish/EU law that has arisen between the Irish High Court and the International Protection Appeals Tribunal (IPAT). While this issue will now be decided by the Court of Justice of the European Union, it is argued that the decision of IPAT is correct: EU law only acknowledges the existence of one type of protection applicant, and Irish law, as currently drafted does not meet the requirements of the EU Reception Conditions Directive (recast).||Funding Details:||University College Dublin||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Kluwer Law||Journal:||European Public Law||Volume:||26||Issue:||2||Start page:||243||End page:||263||Copyright (published version):||2020 Kluwer Law||Keywords:||Protection applicants; Asylum seekers; Freedom to work; Labour market; European Union Law; Irish Law; Ireland; Reception Conditions Directive; Reception Conditions Directive recast||Other versions:||https://kluwerlawonline.com/journalarticle/European+Public+Law/26.2/EURO2020043||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
