Identification and Response to the Needs of Trafficked Asylum Seekers
The Immigrant Council of Ireland has published a new report highlighting the challenging experiences for victims of trafficking in Ireland. Trafficking victims are recognised as having specific needs due to the trauma they have likely suffered. The report consists of a number of recommendations so that Irish authorities are better placed to identify and respond to the specific needs of asylum seeking victims of trafficking. The report calls for a more efficient process in identifying victims, for protections for victims during interview by state authorities and for accommodation that is appropriate and sensitive to the needs of victims.
