Principle of non-adversarial hearings at the IRB

Resolution number: 
June 1994
  1. The IRB was originally designed in principle to be a non-adversarial adjudicative tribunal;
  2. The IRB has departed from this founding principle and has devolved into an adversarial process;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR strongly endorse the position contained in the Rebuilding Trust report by James Hathaway that the IRB return and adhere to the principle of being a non-adversarial tribunal of inquiry into Convention refugee claims.
