This chapter will set out the historical development, typologies, experiences, and impacts of immigration detention, concentrating on Australia, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Canada, and the United States. The aim of this chapter is to show the relevance of immigration detention to the field of criminology, including the ways in which this form of incarceration is similar to and different from ‘traditional’ penal logics and institutions. In doing so, it will highlight how immigration detention reflects the broadening reach of penal power and of race, gender, and postcolonial relations in a globalizing world.
