Stephen Shaw’s long-awaited follow-up to his 2015 report on vulnerable adults in immigration detention was published on 24th July 2018. His 260-page report raises a number of concerns about the policies and practices of immigration detention, including questioning the necessity of detention itself that should lead to prompt action. He bemoans the lack of strategy or logic to the detention system, however his recommendations do not go far enough in calling for a radical overhaul of a process which is fundamentally unjust and ineffective.
