|Title:||Social welfare law and asylum seekers in Ireland : an anatomy of exclusion||Authors:||Thornton, Liam||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4568||Date:||Jul-2013||Online since:||2014-07-31T03:00:09Z||Abstract:||This article examines how asylum seekers, initially catered for within the confines of Irish social welfare law, were removed from its ambit. This article provides the first complete account, with reference to law, policy and administrative action, of how asylum seekers in Ireland were placed in a separated system of welfare support, direct provision. It is argued that the direct provision system is of dubious legality and needs to be placed on a legislative footing as a matter of urgency.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Sweet & Maxwell||Journal:||Journal of Social Security Law||Volume:||20||Issue:||2||Start page:||66||End page:||88||Copyright (published version):||2013 Sweet & Maxwell and its Contributors||Keywords:||Asylum seekers; Welfare law; Direct provision; Human rights; Administrative law||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
