The Commission prepared a report for Government which outlines the Commission position on the Quota Review covering the numbers, the integrity of the Quota, family reunification and additional admissions programmes.
The report recommends that the Government:
- Permanently increase the Refugee Quota
- Embed the seven UNHCR principles to prioritise refugees for resettlement
- Use a generous, culturally sensitive and flexible definition of family when looking at family reunification cases
- Consider implementing additional admissions programmes which would offer legal avenues for those displaced to access safety and protection.
