Immigration Detention in Canada

The Global Detention Project (GDP) is a research initiative that assesses states’ use of detention in response to global migration. Based at the Graduate Institute’s Programme for the Study of Global Migration in Geneva, Switzerland, the GDP’s aims include: (1) providing researchers, advocates, and journalists with a measurable and regularly updated baseline for
analysing the growth and evolution of detention practices and policies; (2) encouraging scholarship in this field of immigration studies; and (3) facilitating accountability and transparency in the treatment of detainees.
