A special issue of the Refugee Survey Quarterly, edited by Philippe De Bruycker and Lilian Tsourdi, is available at the following address: https://rsq.oxfordjournals.org/content/35/1.toc
Articles in this issue examine the challenge of asylum detention to refugee protection employing various research methodologies and concentrating on legislative developments, jurisprudence and practice in different national and regional levels: North America, EU, Council of Europe and global level. Some of the contributions build upon the analysis developed in the framework of the Made Real project, which was coordinated by the Odysseus Academic Network and co-financed by the European Commission.
The editors are very grateful to the Editor-in-Chief Vincent Chetail and his team at the RSQ for the opportunity to develop this issue and for an excellent collaboration during the editing process. They also thank Alice Bloomfield, Galina Cornelisse, Cathryn Costello, Alice Edwards, Petra Molnar, Minos Mouzourakis, Joanna Petin and Stephanie J. Silverman for contributing to the issue.
