The IRR provides evidence of the continued assault on human rights inherent within recent developments in asylum and migration law and policy.

As the evidence shows, this erosion of accountability is taking place in conjunction with a broader instrumentalisation of welfare and the coercion of complicity in violation of fundamental human rights.
