    Making Alternatives to Detention in Europe a Reality by Exchanges, Advocacy and Learning"
    Co-funded by the European Union under the European Refugee Fund addresses the knowledge and implementation gaps concerning alternatives to detention for asylum seekers in the EU. It aims to assist Member States in the transposition of the recast Reception Conditions Directive and to enhance the use of alternatives to detention complying with EU and international legal standards. It is coordinated by Odysseus with 13 NGO partners.

    If you want more information about the project and on alternatives to detention in the EU, you can access the project newsletters:

    CONTENTION
    (CONtrol of DeTENTION) funded by the EU under the European Return Fund is implemented by the Migration Policy Centre at the Robert Schuman Centre of the European University Institute (Florence, Italy) in partnership with the Odysseus Network. Its objective is to inform, analyse and compare the judicial control of pre-removal detention of third-country nationals foreseen by the return directive in 11 EU Member States with a view to improving it, in particular regarding the review of the length of detention. More generally, CONTENTION aims to lay the foundation for the first European network of national judges hearing return cases, and to prepare the ground for further judicial cooperation and training of national judges in this field.
