Ending the detention of children: developing an alternative approach to family returns

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The Conservative-Liberal Democrat Government Coalition Agreement (May 2010) included a commitment to end the detention of children for immigration purposes. A review process was established by the Home Office to identify how this commitment would be delivered. This paper on alternatives to detention was produced to inform the review process. It draws upon an existing body of research in the UK and internationally to develop an alternative approach which does not rely upon detention to secure family returns.
