The Direct Provision Files


From the Exploring Direct Provision project by UCD law lecturer Liam Thornton; at a direct provision protest; Liam Thornton

Law lecturer at University College Dublin Liam Thornton has today published 2,000-plus pages of material that he obtained under the Freedom of Information Act pertaining to direct provision.

It includes correspondence between the Department of Justice, the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, the Department of Housing and the HSE, between 1997 and 2018.

It follows months of work by Mr Thornton.

In fairness.

Do all other EU countries have to offer DP services and in the same ratio relative to population?
