The Irish Refugee Council’s mission is to promote and enhance the lives of refugees in Ireland. We are work to achieve this through producing policy, raising awareness and campaigning for a fairer, more transparent asylum system.

A Model Asylum System:

  • A single protection procedure
  • Clear, good quality and transparent decision-making
  • Humane reception conditions, including the right to work
  • Care for separated children on a par with that offered to Irish children in care
  • Special consideration for the needs of vulnerable individuals and groups
  • Effective remedies
