Amnesty International: January 2018
Amnesty International's research has shown the long-term damage immigration detention centres can have on the minds and bodies of those held there. Yet there are thousands incarcerated, often in terrible conditions — with no end in sight.
The uncertainty of not knowing how long detention might last only adds to the distress of all those affected.
