Led by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC), this project aims to reduce the unnecessary and unlawful use of detention as a deterrence measure for asylum-seekers and irregular migrants in Europe, with a sub-regional focus on several main entry point states for irregular migration: Hungary, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy. The project seeks to reiterate the red line between detention and reception in international law through evidence-based advocacy, strategic communications to EU and international bodies, and the development of civil society´s capacity to address these issues accurately and effectively.
