    This book starts with illustrations of the outside of Migrant Detention Centres prisons , then takes us through processing and the spaces that detainees are forced to inhabit, as well as their dehumanizing nature The stark, plain drawings than serve their purpose in imparting both the information about the issue of migrant detention and, for that matter, prisons , as well as giving the reader a sense of the disorienting and demoralizing aspects of the spaces The book finishes with an interview with a former migrant detainee, and additional information, particularly ab...

    MIGRANT DETENTION IN CANADA JUST A NICE WAY TO SAY PRISON Shame on me for giving 2 stars only, but there isn t much bang for the bucks Although I sympathize with Tings Chak, her analysis doesn t go beyond uncomfortable places with CCTV and detainees are humans too and Adolf Eichmann like architects Not wrong, of course, but doesn t come as surprise either, given that prison life of innocent is even a popular movie and documentary genre whatever the clich s Are facts sufficient, without the critique of ideology The question who actually architects migrant detention centres, of purpose and design objectives, strategies and means, consequences etc, is known to Tings Chak but very poorly answered The answers were given in cautious one liner quotations below pictures of doors, just enough to psychologize the quoted man or woman.At least the intro points out the inconspicuousness of the centres or maximum security prisons ...
