This report calls for the review of hostile migration law and policy implemented by destination States around the world in response to the global influx of refugees and other migrants. This report finds that these policies are premised on deterrence, rather than humanitarianism or international legal principles, and often put those seeking entry at risk of torture and ill-treatment. In identifying particularly pressing areas for reform, including the implementation of spurious and punitive immigration detention regimes, this report underscores the need to respect the physical and mental integrity of asylum seekers while their claims are being processed.
