DEVAS: Project on the Detention of Vulnerable Asylum-Seekers in the European Union.

DEVAS: Project on the Detention of Vulnerable Asylum-Seekers in the European Union.

The detention of vulnerable asylum-seekers is currently a concern in Europe given the higher risk of abuse and neglect these people face in detention as well as the increased willingness of states to detain asylum-seekers in general. Detained female asylum-seekers, for example, are vulnerable to physical and sexual abuse from male detainees or male staff in the detention centre. Women also experience medical needs, such as pregnancy, that require specialised protection and attention. Persons with serious medical needs require specialised attention from trained medical professionals, and some may even require 24-hour care.

The DEVAS project, with the participation of the HHC, aims to research the detention conditions and practices towards vulnerable asylum-seekers in 23 EU member states, including Hungary.

The final report of the project, Becoming Vulnerable in Detention, summarises project findings and also contains country reports on detention of migrants in 23 European states.

Coordinated by: Jesuit Refugee Service – Europe
