Monitoring Immigration Detention - Practical manual (2014)
Today the use of immigration detention as a migration management tool is on the rise in a large number of countries. The detention of asylum-seekers and migrants represents a growing human rights challenge worldwide.
This Monitoring Manual was produced jointly by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the APT and the International Detention Coalition (IDC). It is a step-by-step guide for anyone or any institution carrying out immigration detention visits. It can also be used as a checklist for authorities, detention centre staff and journalists on the standards that need to be applied when asylum-seekers and migrants are detained.
