Evidence on CEDAW for the APPG Detention Inquiry

Detention Inquiry evidence

We are delighted that the All Party Parliamentary Groups on Migration and Refugees are jointly holding an inquiry into immigration detention, Chaired by Sarah Teather MP.

We at Using CEDAW have provided a short briefing on the relevance of international women rights to the immigration detention of women.

The inquiry has heard evidence sessions from people who have been detained and representatives from civil society. The inquiry has put questions to SERCO and Ministers and the inquiry’s report is now expected in the near future. We await the report with anticipation…
