"Excessively Cruel": Detention, deportation and separated families
Families living with the pressure of insecure immigration status are likely to be poorer, sicker and unhappier than those with secure citizenship. A new report, published by the University of Birmingham and the University of Bristol, calls on policy- and decision-makers to recognise the impacts of the immigration system on families with precarious status and take steps to ensure they are able to navigate the system more fairly.

Chaired by Baroness Shami Chakrabarti the webinar will include an overview of the research and its main findings from project lead Dr Melanie Griffiths (University of Birmingham). The panel of speakers includes Rudy Schulkind from the NGO Bail for Immigration Detainees who will present research they are launching on the impact of immigration detention and deportation on British families. They will be joined by Sonali Naik QC, a senior public law and immigration practitioner at Garden Court Chambers, and Ace Ruele Aristotles, a London-born actor and father who is fighting to remain in the UK.

The presentations will be followed by a roundtable Q&A session with questions from the audience.
