Immigration Detention & ATD in the Asia Pacific Region

May 17, 2022

This Report is intended to inform and support preparations for the first International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) in May 2022, as well as serve as a useful resource for post-IMRF implementation efforts in the Asia Pacific region. This report summarises the results of a mapping of the use of immigration detention and alternatives to immigration detention (ATD) in 19 countries across the five sub-regions of the Asia-Pacific region: East and North-East Asia, South-East Asia, South and South-West Asia, North and Central Asia, and the Pacific. This report also includes an Annex with more detailed profiles for each country included in the research mapping.
