1) International Refugee Rights Initiative:

“Movement restricted”: new policy paper on Congolese refugees in Angola
Between March and July 2017, close to 35,000 Congolese refugees fled atrocities in the Kasai region and sought safety in Angola. While the Angolan government has offered many safety from militia and army attacks in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), its treatment of those who have fled is troubling. IRRI's new policy paper - based on interviews in October 2017 with 45 Congolese refugees in Lunda Norte province in Angola - describes how unregistered refugees in Angola are living with serious restrictions on their freedom of movement, the ongoing threat of premature return and the risk of harassment, corruption and arbitrary detention.

Host Community Perspectives of Uganda’s Lamwo Refugee Settlement
This paper examines the complexities surrounding the acquisition of land from customary Acholi landowners in Lamwo District. It sheds light on the perspectives of those whose land is now supporting the refugee response in Lamwo Refugee Settlement and the challenges they currently face in securing their land tenure and understanding the conditions upon which their land is now being occupied.

2) New Alarm Phone Report out: “The Struggle of Women across the Sea”
We have published our latest Alarm Phone report, entitled “The Struggle of Women across the Sea”. It focuses on the stories and experiences of migrant women, but also explores recent developments in the three Mediterranean regions and gives an account of the 25 emergency cases we have worked on over the past 6 weeks. The report can be found on our website: https://alarmphone.org/en/2018/03/22/the-struggle-of-women-across-the-sea/?post_type_release_type=post
And on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/watchthemed.alarmphone/posts/2082619308678968
Please read and spread widely! Best wishes, the Alarm Phone

3) Global Detention Project:

Immigration Detention in Ireland: Will Better Detention Mean More Detention?
The number of individuals placed in immigration detention in Ireland is relatively low. However, as the GDP's latest country profile highlights, a failure to separate between administrative and criminal detention, and the country's decision to place immigration detainees in prisons rather than dedicated facilities, has seen Ireland face significant international criticism. The government has long planned to open a dedicated immigration detention facility, which may bring country closer into line with international norms but also result in more people being detained.

Submission to the UN Committee on Migrant Workers: Algeria 
Migrants and asylum seekers transiting Algeria are exposed to discrimination, arrest, detention, and waves of expulsions. In this joint submission to the UN Committee on Migrant Workers, the GDP and Le Collectif Loujna Tounkaranké highlight many of the abuses that migrants face in the country, while also calling on Algeria to provide greater transparency regarding its treatment of migrants. The submission raises particular concerns about conditions in detention, the length of detention, and expulsion procedures.
