There Are Alternatives


Date of publication:  01 Oct 2015 Authors:  International Detention Coalition Publisher:  International Detention Coalition Publication type:  Toolkit / Handbook / Manual

In this handbook, the International Detention Coalition presents research findings gathered over the last five years concerning how to identify and describe alternatives to immigration detention (‘alternatives’).  This Handbook tabulates the findings to offer governments a way of moving forward with this difficult area of policy.   This Handbook was written in response to the growing interest of governments, civil society and other stakeholders in finding reliable, cost-effective and humane ways of managing asylum seekers, refugees and migrants outside of detention.  The handbook provides a comparison of detention and its consequences versus "alternatives" as a means to presenting its findings.
