Detained and Dehumanised: The impact of immigration detention

The Jesuit Refugee Service UK (JRS UK)’s report ‘Detained and Dehumanised: The impact of immigration detention draws from the accounts of 27 forcibly displaced people supported by JRS UK, with direct experience of detention spanning the last 20 years. It finds that the Home Office policy of immigration detention fosters a culture of death, self-harm and ongoing trauma leaving those who are detained, or threatened by the prospect of detention, dehumanised.
