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

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.
