The Intermediate meeting of the project ‘CONTENTION’ (CONtrol of DeTENTION), co-funded by the European Union in the framework of the European Return Fund, took place at the European University Institute (EUI) on the 3rd and 4th of October last. The meeting took place in the EUI’s Migration Policy Centre (MPC) at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS). The programme of the meeting can be found here.

The project’s coordination team were on hand to welcome a large number of national experts and judges from the eleven participating States. That expertise was complemented by the presence of the project’s Scientific Committee. The main purpose of the intermediate meeting was to discuss the project’s preliminary results which have been gathered by the national experts and judges and collated by the project’s coordination team. The completed questionnaires, which were an essential part of the feedback from each of the participating Member States, will soon be made available on the CONTENTION website.
