- Savitri Taylor, ‘Australian Neo-Colonialism in the Pacific: Immigration Detention in Papua New Guinea’ in Amy Nethery and Stephanie J Silverman (eds), Immigration Detention: The Migration of a Policy and its Human Impact (Abingdon: Routledge, 2015) 135-144.
- Amy Nethery, Brynna Rafferty-Brown and Savitri Taylor, ‘At the Discretion of Management: Immigration Detention in Indonesia’ in Amy Nethery and Stephanie J Silverman (eds), Immigration Detention: The Migration of a Policy and its Human Impact (Abingdon: Routledge, 2015) 114-124.
This edited volume examines the contemporary diffusion of immigration detention policy throughout the world and the impact of this expansion on the prospects of protection for people seeking asylum. It includes contributions by immigration detention experts working in Australasia, the Americas, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. It is the first to set out a systematic comparison of immigration detention policy across these regions and to examine how immigration detention has become a ubiquitous part of border and immigration control strategies globally. In so doing, the volume presents a global perspective on the diversity of immigration detention policies and practices, how these circumstances developed, and the human impact of states exchanging individuals’ rights to liberty for the collective assurance of border and immigration control.
The book can be purchased through the Taylor & Francis website.
