Discussion Paper on the Common Travel Area.

We produced a discussion paper on the CTA, commissioned by the Joint Committee of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission and the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission.

It recommends that both the Irish and UK Governments should look to secure a “gold standard” approach through a new intergovernmental Common Travel Area treaty. Such a treaty would formalise common immigration rules, travel rights, residency rights, and related rights to education, social security, work, health and security and justice.
