The annual European Migration Network policy reports examine the main political developments in the area of migration and asylum at EU Member State level. This second policy report focuses on the period from July 2004 to December 2005. This report for Ireland compiles information on migration trends, legislative developments and policy implementation issues. Important developments in the period included increased migration from the accession states post May 2004, the commencement of new citizenship legislation, restrictions on students’ access to the labour market and the introduction of measures designed to speed up the asylum application procedure.
