This event is a student-led question and answer session with three panel members who have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience working and advocating for refugees in Ireland. Making decisions on whether someone faces persecution or human rights violations in their home country can be complex, and the legal process can be confusing. Yet the need for high quality decision making is clear. This seminar will therefore provide an accessible overview of the refugee determination procedure in Ireland including its decision-making process, as well as discussing the challenges to the current system and the recommendations posed by the Day Report. The seminar will take the form of an interactive discussion between the student interviewers and the panel members, and the audience will also be afforded the opportunity to pose questions to the panel members in connection to the theme.
