Submission to the inquiry into immigration detention in Australia

The Edmund Rice Centre made a submission to the Federal Parliament's Inquiry into Immigration Detention. The Inquiry which was called in June by Senator Evans, the Minster for Immigration is being conducted by Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Migration. In its submission the Edmund Rice Centre (ERC) argues that mandatory detention should be dropped immediately, presenting evidence of how it is in breach of Australia's legal commitments under the 1951 Convention relating to the status of refugees.
