Global Detention Project:

Immigration Detention in Luxembourg: Systematic Deprivation of Liberty
Although Luxembourg has a very small immigration detention system, the number of detainees has risen in recent years. Since opening a dedicated detention facility in 2011, observers have noted a general improvement in material conditions. On the other hand, detention in Luxembourg appears to have become the rule rather than an exception. Read the full report: https://www.globaldetentionproject.org/countries/europe/luxembourg 

Submission to the Universal Periodic Review: Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia is pursuing a "Saudisation" labour policy aimed at limiting the number of foreign-born workers. This has led to huge numbers of people being placed in deplorable detention conditions as they await removal. In this joint submission, the GDP and Migrant-Rights.org highlight the country's deportation campaigns and the accompanying ill-treatment of migrants. The submission highlights how female non-citizens—including victims of trafficking—are vulnerable to arrest and abuses while in custody.

Submission to the Universal Periodic Review: Malaysia 
Despite its poor human rights record and failure to ratify pivotal human rights treaties, Malaysia is a magnet for migrants and asylum seekers. Every year, tens of thousands are placed in immigration detention in conditions observers have described as "dire" and "unacceptable." In this submission, the GDP underscores the appalling detention conditions and lists key questions regarding the country’s immigration detention regime and infrastructure that Malaysian authorities should be asked to address.

International Detention Coalition (IDC):
There are Alternatives: Africa https://idcoalition.org/publication/atd-africa/

This report provides an overview of alternatives to immigration detention in Africa. Drawing from examples in 32 African countries, the report highlights some of the measures in place that contribute to the effective and humane governance of migration, while avoiding the use of unnecessary immigration detention. It complements There are alternatives – a handbook to prevent unnecessary immigration detention (https://idcoalition.org/publication/there-are-alternatives-revised-edition/ ) and builds on IDC’s 2016 report Alternatives to Immigration Detention in Africa (https://idcoalition.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Alternatives-in-Africa_web_graphics_final.pdf )
These publications include the Community Assessment and Placement model (the CAP model https://idcoalition.org/cap/ ) which is a tool to build systems that ensure detention is only used as a last resort and that community options result in optimal outcomes.
