Coming Soon: New Research on Alternatives in Africa

research on alternatives to detention in Africa

The IDC is excited to announce that we will soon have new research focusing on the Africa region.

“Alternatives to Immigration Detention in Africa” will be launched alongside the 62nd session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights in late April 2018.

It shows that alternatives to detention are already being used across Africa to great effect, with a lot of potential to be up-scaled for more cost savings.

It builds on the 2017 publication Alternatives to Immigration Detention in Africa  which mapped legislation, policies and practices related to immigration detention, including child detention, and alternativesin Egypt, Kenya, Libya, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.
