The final Burke panel of the year will be discussing Direct Provision. Direct Provision was initially introduced as an emergency measure in 1999. It has been repeatedly criticised by human rights watchdogs. The long delays for those in direct provision to have their applications processed, lack of working rights and restrictions on the freedoms of inhabitants are all elements of Direct Provision that have come under attack. Many wish to see the system abolished completely. Our panel of guests and students will be discussing these issues and more in what is sure to be an illuminating and informative panel. It will be followed by a Q&A with the audience and a reception.
