APPG: Inquiry into quasi-detention, deadline 25 June 2021

All Party Parliamentary Group – APPG: Immigration has launched an Inquiry into quasi-detention

The APPG on Immigration Detention is conducting an inquiry into the UK Government’s use of large-scale institutional sites, such as former military barracks and a temporarily ‘de-designated’ Immigration Removal Centre (IRC), as asylum accommodation.

Such sites replicate many of the features found in detained settings, including isolation from the wider community, visible security measures, and reduced levels of privacy and control/agency for residents. The inquiry therefore refers to them as sites of ‘quasi-detention’.

The APPG invites individuals and organisations with relevant information to submit written evidence to the inquiry.

You must read the call for the written evidence before submitting: https://appgdetention.org.uk/inquiry-into-quasi-detention-the-use-of-large-scale-institutional-sites-as-asylum-accommodation-call-for-written-evidence/

The deadline for submitting written evidence is 5pm on Friday 25 June 2021.
