Refugee and Asylum Law in Ireland is structured around the International Protection Act 2015, which is a restatement of the law that has built up around the Refugee Act 1996 over the past two decades. The aim of the Act, according to the Government, is to bring Ireland into line with the rest of the EU by introducing a single application procedure and to reduce the length of time people spend in the direct provision system.This book offers detailed commentary on practice and procedure in this area. It provides lawyers and law students with analysis of international protection law and guidance on how it applies in Ireland. It also covers areas such as appealing to the International Protection Appeals Tribunal and how to challenge its decisions.Contents:IntroductionHistory of International Protection LawSources of International Protection lawQualifying for International ProtectionApplying for International ProtectionAssessment of Applications for International ProtectionFirst Instance ApplicationsAppeals to the International Protection Appeals TribunalOutcomes of ApplicationsChallenging Decisions on ApplicationsContent of International ProtectionProgramme Refugees and Temporary ProtectionAppendix 1.

The explosion over the past few years of the number of people seeking asylum in Ireland as a result of the booming "Celtic Tiger" economy has focused attention for the first time on a wide range of debates: the need for political asylum and Ireland's international role, how to deal with this new phenomenon domestically, Ireland as a country of immigration as well as emigration, and the adequacy or otherwise of public policy in dealing with the problem. "Refugees and Asylum-Seekers in Ireland" looks at the history of immigration and refugees in Ireland in the twentieth-century, and the background to the recent increase in asylum-seekers. The book looks to the future, assessing political options and considers the implications for the future of Irish society.

The child asylum seeker poses unique challenges for reception and refugee status determination systems, not least because the child is entitled to have his or her rights as a child respected as a matter of international and regional human rights law. In the last decade the European Union has increasingly engaged with children’s rights, with the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty in December 2009, and a new Article 3(3) of the Treaty on European Union that commits the Union to promoting the ‘protection of the rights of the child.’ This book addresses the question of whether the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) complies with the rights of the child. It contrasts the normative standards of international child rights law with the treatment of child asylum seekers and refugees in the CEAS. Ciara Smyth identifies the attributes of the rights of the child that are most relevant to the asylum context and systematically examines whether and to what extent those attributes are reflected in the CEAS legislation. The book goes on to assess whether the CEAS instruments direct Member States to comply with the rights of the child, offering a comprehensive examination of the place of the child within European asylum law and policy. The book will be of great use and interest to scholars and students of international law, immigration and children’s rights studies.

This volume explores the factors that give rise to the number of people seeking asylum and examines the barriers they currently and will continue to face. Divided into three parts, the authors first explore the causality that generates displacement, examining climate change, illegal conflicts and the deprivation of natural resources. They argue that all of these problems either originate from human agency directly, or are strongly influenced by human activities, particularly those of wealthy countries in the North West. The study goes on to discuss how migrants are received and the problems they face on arrival, and concludes with confronting the fate and the status of asylum seekers after arrival, and the walls, both virtual and material, that they encounter. The authors propose ways of approaching the situation, beyond the present language and the limited interpretations of the Convention on the Status of Refugees. Written by leading experts in environmental ethics, asylum law, and international law, the book will be essential reading for those working in these and related areas.

Children make up half of the world’s refugees and over 40 per cent of the world’s asylum seekers. However, children are largely invisible in historical and contemporary refugee law. Furthermore, there has been very limited interaction between the burgeoning children’s rights framework, in particular the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), and the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (Refugee Convention). This book explores the possibility of a children’s rights approach to the interpretation of the Refugee Convention and within that what such an approach might look like. In order to construct a children’s rights approach, the conceptualisations of children outside the legal discipline, within international children’s rights law and then within refugee law and refugee discourse are analysed. The approach taken is socio-legal and comparative in nature and the suitability of the Refugee Convention as a framework for the interpretation of child claims is examined. The book analyses to what extent the Refugee Convention is capable of dealing with claims from children based on the modern conceptualisation of children, which is underscored by two competing ideologies: the child as a vulnerable object in law to be protected and the child as subject with rights and the capacity to exercise their agency. The influence each regime has had on the other is also analysed. The work discusses how a children’s rights approach might improve outcomes for child applicants. The book makes an original contribution to child refugee discourse and as such will be an invaluable resource for academics, researchers and policymakers working in the areas of migration and asylum law, children’s rights and international human rights law.
