The ELI Project on ‘Detention of Asylum Seekers and Irregular Migrants and the Rule of Law‘ aims at developing a checklist of binding standards that must be taken into account when deciding upon the detention of asylum seekers and irregular migrants. The output of the project is expected to be presented at the ELI 2016 Annual Conference, in Ferrara (Italy), from 7 to 9 September. It will then be distributed primarily among judges deciding detention cases. It will also be used as a tool during trainings for practitioners.
