Annex to Policy Brief: COVID-19 & Immigration Detention: What Can Governments and Other Stakeholders Do?

This Annex aims at revisiting some of the promising responses on COVID-19 and immigration detention identified in the Policy Brief published by the UN Network on Migration in April 2020, including obstacles in implementation that have emerged since. By taking a close look at some developments observed over the past months by members of the UN Migration Network Working Group on Alternatives to Detention, this document identifies both worrying trends and opportunities to address these.
