Policy Brief No. 4 (2013) | Detention of Undocumented Migrants in Asia

Policy Brief No. 4 (2013)
Detention of Undocumented Migrants in Asia

The issue of the detention of migrants, both documented and undocumented, has been taken up by many civil society groups and migrants’ rights advocates across the world as states have become increasingly concerned with migrants entering, living, and working within their borders. While the means, mechanisms, and regulations for the detention of migrants vary from country to country, common issues persist stemming from the situation of extreme vulnerability in which migrants live, move, and work given their status as non-citizens in their countries of destination.
