Join us for this one day hybrid conference as we launch our collaborative report on immigration policy in NI

About this event

Funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, the Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ) Immigration Project has partnered with frontline service and advice organisations to produce Frontline Lessons for the Future: Collaborative research on the impact of immigration law and policy in post-Brexit Northern Ireland.

This report maps key issues and challenges for migrant rights in Northern Ireland, based on collaborative research with frontline organisations. It aims to combine expert frontline data and experience with CAJ’s legal and policy analysis. Building on the findings of the Immigration Project’s previous report, Can Stormont Rollback the Home Office Hostile Environment?, the new report proposes policy and legislative reforms aimed at overcoming current challenges and creating a welcoming, human rights compliant immigration regime for Northern Ireland.

Both online and in-person tickets are available for the launch of this report. The latter, however, is strictly limited so please book early to avoid disappointment!


  • Introduction from UNISON Regional Coordinator, Patricia McKeown, and CAJ Immigration Project Solicitor and Coordinator, Úna Boyd.
  • Presentation of research reports from frontline service partners.
  • Panel discussions on chapter findings with research partners.
  • Panel examining report findings and ways forward.
  • Breakout discussion groups.

Lunch will be provided for in-person attendees!

If you have any questions about this event, email events@caj.org.uk. Joining instructions will be sent out to all attendees the day before the conference.

Special thanks to all of our research partners who contributed to the report: STEP NI, Children’s Law Centre, Participation and Practice of Rights (PPR), Migrant Centre NI, and Victim Support NI.
