The Migration Policy Centre is delighted to announce the start of the project CONTENTION (Control of Detention), co-funded by the European Union in the framework of the European Return Fund. CONTENTION will be implemented by the Migration Policy Centre (RSCAS, EUI) in partnership with the Odysseus Network (ULB).

The kick-off meeting aims at bringing together project participants, in particular judges and academic experts from 11 EU Member States as well as the members of the Scientific Committee and a representative from the European Commission, to debate the project concept note on the extent of judicial control of pre-removal detention in the EU and to discuss the building blocks of the questionnaire which will serve as a basis for 11 national reports to be written by project participants.
