The chapter examines how international human rights law and EU law confront immigration detention, revealing that the protections against immigration detention are weaker than against other forms of detention. The tension between the right to liberty and migration control prerogatives has been mediated both before the ECtHR, which has a specific provision on immigration detention in Article 5(1)(f) ECHR, and in EU law. The CJEU has become part of the apparatus of supranational human rights adjudication over the bulk of immigration detention by EU Member States. A complex field of pluralistic interactions has emerged, with mixed results of human rights.
