Rapports sur la détention des migrants

Civil Society Report on the Detention of Vulnerable Asylum Seekers and Irregular Migrants in the European Union (The DEVAS Project)


The objective of the DEVAS project was to investigate and analyse vulnerability in detained asylum seekers and irregular migrants : both the way in which pre-existing vulnerable groups cope with detention, and the way in which detention can enable vulnerability in persons who do not otherwise possess officially recognised vulnerabilities and special needs.
