Guide for policy makers
This report provides an overview of alternatives to immigration detention in Africa. Drawing from examples in 32 African countries, the report highlights some of the measures in place that contribute to the effective and humane governance of migration, while avoiding the use of unnecessary immigration detention.
African policy makers are facing both internal and external pressure to manage migration more effectively. The research undertaken for this report demonstrates that:

About 1.5% of those held in the desert are children accompanied by their parents, or single mothers; the vast majority is from Eritrea.
Once arrived in Israel, the Anti-Infiltration Law foresees detention of refugees, including their children for up to three years. Refugees from a so-called “Enemy State”, such as Sudan, may be detained indefinitely, also their children.
