February 12, 2021

IDC serves as co-lead of the Alternatives to Detention (ATD) Working Group of the United Nations Network on Migration, alongside UNHCR and UNICEF. In this role, IDC co-produced this Annex aiming at revisiting some of the promising responses on COVID-19 and immigration detention identified in the Policy Brief published by the UN Network on Migration in April 2020, including obstacles in implementation that have emerged since. By taking a close look at some developments observed over the past months by members of the UN Migration Network Working Group on Alternatives to Detention, this document identifies both worrying trends and opportunities to address these.
