The International Protection Act 2015 – the changes and implications

When: Wednesday 15th June, 10am and 2pm sessions
Where: Irish Refugee Council, 37 Dame Street, Dublin 2

TEAS Information Session Pic copyAre you working with or do you provide support and information to asylum seekers and refugees?  The International Protection Act 2015 is due to be fully in force in July and is the biggest change in international protection law in Ireland for almost 20 years.

Do you want to know how the International Protection Act 2015 will impact on those in the asylum system now or those to come after the Act is in force?  If so, you need to come to the training/information session which is specifically aimed at non-lawyers.  The IRC is running two identical sessions on Wednesday 15th June at our office in Dublin for NGOs and voluntary groups working with and for asylum seekers and refugees.

The sessions will cover:  the new single procedure (refugee, subsidiary protection and permission to remain), children and other vulnerable people, the rights of people granted international protection and the transitional provisions (outlining how people in the system may be impacted by the new procedure).

The training/information session is free but it is essential to book as places are limited.  Organisations are restricted to  a maximum of two places (which can be split between the two sessions).

Please book for one of the following sessions:

Wednesday 15th June 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Wednesday 15th June 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The IRC will also be producing information which will be available on-line about different aspects of the Act.
