One the first commitments made by the Coalition government on coming into power was an end to child detention. How much progress has been made towards achieving this goal? What alternatives are there to child detention? What is the evidence on the efficacy of these alternatives? This briefing will be presented by Professor Crawley, Professor of International Migration, Swansea University and Director of the Centre for Migration Policy Research.

Speaker: Dr. Heaven Crawley, Centre for Migration Policy Research (CMPR), Swansea University
