MRCI’s submission on Integration, Multiculturalism and Combating Racism to Joint Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality. September 2013

Realising Rights for Migrants, Immigrants and their families.

MRCI believes that the integration of migrants extends from the full realisation of a person’s socio-economic and cultural rights. Central to this concept is the active participation of migrants in civil and political life, in decision-making processes and structures that affect their lives. Equality measures and principles, coupled with ensuring access to rights, justice and basic services are central to realising integration. Therefore integration must be measured and based on equality, social inclusion and participation in society through - education, the labour market and civic and political life.
