The cluster brings together scholars, practitioners, and policy people interested in the practice of detention as it relates to asylum seekers and refugees. Our primary aims are to consolidate and broadcast studies of detention and their findings, and to deepen our understanding of detention and asylum both academically and in practice worldwide. Our location in Canada indicates a Canadian emphasis or angle in some of the research presented.
