Videos – UK Immigration Detention Centres

Benefiting from an unprecedented level of access to immigration detention centres, Mary Bosworth, author of Inside Immigration Detention, gives detailed insight into immigration detention centres drawing from her own observations, conversations, and research. She tells us about what the detention centres are like as institutions, what they are like to live in, she discusses a typical day in a detention centre, explaining how they vary depending on the institution, and what type of activities the detainees take part in. She describes the quality of life of detainees, how this can be negatively affected by the institution or their situation, and whether or not they feel like prisons.
