This case study discussed at our 3rd Knowledge Exchange Forum 'What Works?' examines the campaign to improve social welfare access for immigrants and was initiatied following the worrying evidence that had mounted as to how migrants were treated, three agencies, Crosscare (dublin), Doras Luimní (limerick) and Nasc (Cork) came together with other national and regional NGOs, 'to compile a snapshot of the barriers facing migrants trying to access social protection'. the resulting report 'Person or number?' thus arises from the shared experiences of NGOs in assisting migrants to access their rights to social protection.
As part of the event we invited cartoonist Allan Kavanagh to interpret the dicussions happening at the event in relation to the examples of successful advocacy case studies.
