This report aims to inform and support preparations for the first International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) in May 2022, as well as to serve as a useful resource for post-IMRF implementation efforts in the Asia-Pacific region. This report summarises the findings of a study on the use of immigration detention and alternatives to immigration detention in 19 countries in the five sub-regions of the Asia-Pacific region: East and Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, South and Southwest Asia, North and Central Asia, and the Pacific. This report also includes an Appendix with more detailed country profiles for each country included in the research mapping.
