Perspectives on Preventative Detention considered at Onati workshop

A recent workshop at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law in Onati in the Basque country brought together specialists from 15 countries to examine the practice of preventive detention from historical, legal, criminological and psychiatric perspectives. Organised by AHRCentre’s Chris Michaelsen, the workshop explored comparative perspectives on the theory and practice of preventive detention. The papers presented at the workshop will be published in an edited collection.
