In the following video from the EPIM workshop in June 2013, project coordinator Maaike Vanderbruggen gives an overview of the objectives, key activities and impact of the project:
This project aims to increase public debate on the detention of unreturnable migrants and whether governments should use detention as a last resort. It also hopes to increase momentum amongst policy-makers at national and EU levels to reduce detention and find solutions for unreturnable migrants. Awareness-raising will be assisted through the collection of stories of unreturnable persons (formerly) in detention, so as to “put a face to the story”.
