Blogathon to mark 14yrs of Direct Provision
When: 10 April 2014
On 10 April 2014, direct provision will be in operation for 14 years. To mark this event, the academic blog Human Rights in Ireland, www.humanrights.ie, will dedicate 14 hours to discussion on the law, politics, policy and experience of direct provision.
Dr. Liam Thornton, Lecturer in Law at UCD and one of the organisers, said,
“During the last blog carnival hosted by www.humanrights.ie, posts written by asylum seekers themselves were the most accessed and were picked up on social and mainstream media. The format used for these posts that worked so well the last time, can be viewed here”
