Ireland: Submission to the United Nations Committee on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination

Index Number: EUR 29/1344/2019

In this document, Amnesty International sets out its concerns about the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination by Ireland in relation to: the “direct provision” system for accommodating asylum seekers; the impact of criminalization of the purchase of sex and other forms of criminalisation of activities around sex work such as “brothel keeping” on migrant sex workers; and restrictions in access to abortion services which may put migrant and minority ethnic women and girls’ health at risk.
