About The European ATD Network

The “European Alternatives to Detention (ATD) Network” is a group of European NGOs which aims to reduce and end immigration detention by building evidence and momentum on engagement-based alternatives. The Network brings together NGOs running case management-based alternative to detention pilot projects in four European countries (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Poland and the UK) with regional-level organisations. The International Detention Coalition (IDC) facilitate the Network and the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) leads the Network’s advocacy at the EU-level. The Network is supported by the European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM).
