This website is the online home of the “Detention and Asylum” research cluster of the Refugee Research Network (www.refugeeresearch.net). The cluster brings together scholars, practitioners, and policymakers 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.
For more information, please view the cluster's advisory committee and associates and email Dr. Stephanie J. Silverman at email@example.com if you are interested in the posted content or otherwise would like to get in touch.
