Immigration Detention in Macedonia Report (Jan-June, 2017)

Macedonian Young Lawyers Association (MYLA), supported by the European Union and the UNHCR representation in Skopje, published a mid-year report on Immigration Detention in Macedonia (January-June, 2017). The report is a result of MYLA’s active work in the field of protection of refugees and migrants detained for immigration related purposes.

The mid-year report shows comparative data on the profile of detained third-country nationals, discusses the legal grounds for detention, the conditions in the immigration detention facility, and the access to the asylum system for the first six months of 2017. The issues presented are intended to serve as an indicator for further developments in policy and practice in order to protect the rights of those affected by immigration detention.
