Kurzbeschreibung

This book
builds a compelling picture of injustices inside immigration detention centers,
within the context of the rise of the use of immigration detention in the Global
North. The author presents the rarely heard voices of refugees, bringing their
perspectives to light and personalising and humanising a global political
issue.
Based on
in-depth interviews with formerly detained refugees who were involved in a wide
range of protests, such as sit-ins and non-compliance, hunger strikes, lip
sewing, escapes and riots, Human Rights, Refugee Protest and Immigration
Detention presents a comprehensive insight into immigration
detention and protest.
Drawing
on the work of Michel Foucault and Hannah Arendt, the book challenges
contemporary human rights discourses which institutionalise power and will be a
must-read for scholars, advocates and policymakers engaged in debates about
immigration detention and forced migration.
