Conference Summary: Beyond McMahon – the Future of Asylum Reception in Ireland

Thu, June 21, 2018

We are pleased to release the summary of our recent conference, ‘Beyond McMahon – the Future of Asylum Reception in Ireland’, which took place on 25 April, 2018.

A joint venture by Nasc and UCC’s Centre for Criminal Justice and Human Rights (CCJHR), the conference aimed to explore the future of and alternatives to the Irish asylum reception system three years after the publication of the McMahon Report (2015). The summary aims to provide a brief overview of the points raised during the conference, both for those who couldn’t make it, and for those who attended.

We would like to thank all of our guest speakers and audience members for their contributions. Special thanks goes to the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) for funding the project.
