Taking Racism Seriously: Experiences of racism and racially motivated anti-social behaviour in social housing
Racist harassment in housing is much more prevalent and serious than previously documented, new research published today (16.02.2017) by the Immigrant Council of Ireland has found. The report Taking Racism Seriously: Experiences of racism and racially motivated anti-social behaviour in social housing outlines a number of housing-related racist incidents, examines the current gaps in social housing policies and procedures, and outlines potential solutions for this endemic issue.

Hidden Struggles: Filling information gaps regarding adversity faced by refugee women
Submission to the U.S. State Department Trafficking in Persons Report 2017
The Immigrant Council of Ireland has again participated in the U.S. State Department's review of Ireland’s anti-trafficking activities, by submitting this report to inform the annual Trafficking in Persons Report 2017.
The information contained in this submission describes the trafficking situation in Ireland. Trafficking in persons in Ireland remains a largely gendered phenomenon. Trafficking for sexual exploitation, which disproportionately affects women, is still the most prevalent form of the practice. Most victims originate from EU Member States, with Romania being the main country of origin. Additional forms of trafficking which exist in Ireland include for labour exploitation, criminal activities (particularly the cultivation of cannabis and some reports of exploitation in the fishing industry), and for the purpose of sham marriages, as recently highlighted in a report of the Immigrant Council.

Child Migration Matters
Child Migration Matters - Executive Summary
In January 2016, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child examined Ireland’s compliance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). It recommended that Ireland adopt a legal framework to address the needs of migrant children. This research was undertaken to document what those needs were and how the absence of a framework for legal migration impacted children’s and young people’s lives.
