Podcast series launch: Immigration detention, the ongoing harms
The Unchained Collective - a collective of people with and without lived experiences of immigration detention and border violence, using art as a form of challenging the system - invite you to the launch of their new podcast series, 'Immigration Detention, the ongoing harms’, funded by the Quintin Hogg Trust.
Through conversations between those who have lived and survived through immigration detention, this series illuminates the ongoing impacts of this oppressive system on individuals, families, communities and society at large, also asking important questions about alternative futures based on justice and freedom for all.
Ultimately, these powerful accounts serve as a collective call to action. When future books chronicle the history of systematic incarceration and torture of racialised individuals for crossing borders, what role would you like to have played in that history? This is a question this podcast series compel you to ask yourself.
The event is promoted by the Centre for Social Justice Research at the University of Westminster in collaboration with Border Criminologies, and joined by AVID-Association of Visitors to Immigration Detainees.
The event is free and open to the public. It will include showcasing of podcast episodes, interventions by members of the Unchained Collective involved in the production of the podcast series, as well as experts on immigration detention and border controls.
This event is connected with the Border Criminologies Detention and Deportation thematic group.
