We are pleased to announce that audio files are now available for most of the presentations given on 1st February at the Supporting Immigration Detainees seminar. We hope that this will be a useful resource both for attendees and for those who were unable to be present on the day but would like more details of the discussions.
Recordings are available to download of the talks given by Ali McGinley from AVID, Adeline Trude of BID, Jerome Phelps of Detention Action, John Speyer of Music in Detention and Gill Baden of the Bail Observation Project.
You can also listen to Ruhul, co-founder of the newsletter ‘Speak Out!’, who spoke of his first-hand experience in immigration detention, and Dr Lauren Martin of University of Oulu in Finland, who presented her experiences working with NGOs supporting immigration detainees in the USA.
All the recordings are available here: http://asylum-network.com/2013/02/05/successful-immigration-detention-seminar-held-on-1st-february-2013/
The next seminar in the immigration detention series will be held in York in July on the topic of politics and detention, organised by Dr Alex Hall (Alexandra.Hall@york.ac.uk). We hope to see you there!
