Annual Monitoring Report on Integration 2012

The Immigrant Council of Ireland (2013) has criticised the existing Irish administrative scheme as discretionary and poorly defined in terms of rights and entitlements: the impact of temporary departure from the State for example is not clear. Ireland scores poorly on long-term residence in MIPEX 2011 (Huddleston et al., 2011) due to the lack of a generally accessible long-term residence scheme…Ireland’s political system is generally deemed to be inclusive and to offer favourable conditions for migrant integration. See, for example, MIPEX 2011 (Huddleston et al., 2011)MIPEX 2011 scored Ireland at 100 per cent on electoral rights and political liberties, but more poorly on consultative bodies. There is continued uncertainty over the future of the Ministerial Council on Integration, which was established and active for a brief period in 2010. The Integration Centre (2012b) recommends that an expert migrant consultative group should be established to provide advice and to migrant-proof legislation/policies. One recent positive step was the setting up in October 2012 of a Migrant Consultative Forum by the Minister for Social Protection.
