Time for a Time Limit? 

Immigration Detention and Human Rights

6.30pm Thursday 24 May 2018

Bindmans LLP, 236 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8HB

 

This event is now full and no longer open for RSVPs.

 

The government spends more than £100 million on detaining immigrants every year. Last year 10 people died while detained for immigration-related reasons. Courts have found aspects of immigration detention to be “inhuman and degrading” more than once. So why is this allowed to continue? Join our panel to explore why we continue to be the only country in Europe with no legal time limit on immigration detention and what we can do about it.
