|Title:||In opposition, Shatter was fiercely critical of direct provision for asylum seekers : Opinion: In government, however, he has radically changed his tune||Authors:||Thornton, Liam||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5215||Date:||8-Nov-2013||Online since:||2014-01-09T08:45:18Z||Abstract:||The system for claiming asylum in Ireland is broken. Carl O'Brien's reports in The Irish Times over the last few weeks shine a light on simply one of the broken spokes within Ireland's asylum system: direct provision. Under Irish law the State has a responsibility to investigate and determine whether an individual falls into the legal category of refugee or has any other legal claim for protection in this country. However, what rights does this person, an asylum seeker, have while their claim is being determined? If an asylum seeker is found to be in need of protection a person will be granted extensive rights, almost on par with rights enjoyed by citizens as regards a right to work, right to become self-employed, right to travel in and out of this State and a right to access social security.||Type of material:||Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine||Publisher:||Irish Times||Journal:||The Irish Times||Issue:||Friday, November 8, 2013||Copyright (published version):||2013, the Irish Times||Keywords:||Direct provision; Asylum seekers; Ireland; Socio-economic rights||Other versions:||http://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/in-opposition-shatter-was-fiercely-critical-of-direct-provision-for-asylum-seekers-1.1587414||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
