Captured Childhood

On the same day as the Campaign launch, the IDC also launched its policy document “Captured Childhood”. The report includes interviews with 70 children who had been detained in a total of 11 countries and provides practical examples from countries including Belgium, the Philippines, Argentina, Sweden and Japan of ways to prevent the immigration detention of children.


It details a practical model which has been developed by IDC – the Child-Sensitive Community Assessment and Placement (CCAP) model, which provides a decision making model for Governments, NGOs and other stakeholders to prevent detention.
