The Immigrant Council of Ireland (ICI) is an independent human rights organisation that was established in 2001. It advocates for the rights of migrants and their families and acts as a catalyst for public debate as well as legislative and policy change.
The ICI is an Independent Law Centre, which means it can provide legal representation to migrants and their families. It undertakes strategic litigation in order to try to effect change. It also provides a Racist Incident Support and Referral Service, undertakes work in the area of integration, conducts policy and campaign work and provides a training service.
The ICI also provides a Specialist Immigration Advocacy Service for vulnerable migrants and those who have experienced human rights abuses in Ireland, such as victims of sex trafficking, people who have experienced domestic violence and children. The ICI's Information and Referral Service deals with more than 10,000 enquiries about Ireland’s immigration system each year.
