Scottish Detainee Visitors: Refugee Week Detention Event

Expensive, Ineffective, Unjust: Challenging Immigration Detention

Scottish Detainee Visitors and Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network are holding a discussion event as part of Refugee Festival Scotland 2015.  

Following the March 2015 report of the Parliamentary Inquiry into the use of detention in the UK, in Scotland a broad civil society movement challenging detention is growing and the need for a time limit featured in the election campaign of many parties across the UK.

This event, which considers the situation post-election, asks where the results of the election leave the campaign for change. Speakers include Jerome Phelps from Detention Action. More information here.
