Council of Europe experts examine European immigration detention rules

The Council of Europe’s Committee of Experts on Administrative Detention of Migrants met in Strasbourg from 21 to 22 February.

The committee aims at codifying existing European rules and standards on administrative detention of migrants. The Agency has been part of the committee since autumn 2016 and also took part in this meeting. The Committee thoroughly examined the restructured and overhauled second version of the draft codifying instrument.

The committee will continue until the end of 2018 with the next meeting due to take place in May in Strasbourg.
