The Rule of Law and Immigration Detention
This project is considering the challenges of immigration detention and the question of appropriate rule of law standards. Researchers will include law and practice from domestic, regional (EU and ECHR), international and comparative sources in their analysis.
There will be two main outputs from the project; a set of guidelines identifying the necessary standards, and an accompanying report which will draw together the wealth of materials, principles and proposals currently available in an array of disparate sources.
Relevant stakeholders will be consulted on the guidelines, which will then be disseminated to decision-makers and policy-makers as well as to immigrants, their advisors, and to individuals currently in detention, or facing detention proceedings.
