Understanding Immigration Detention

This project is the first national academic study of life in detention in Britain. Funded by the British Academy, the Nuffield Foundation and the University of Oxford, John Fell Fund, it is broad and exploratory in its scope. Guided by findings from prisons literature, it looks at: (a) Relationships: among detainees and between detainees and staff; (b) Regimes in detention.
