A Guide to Administrative Detention

In May 2012, over 2000 Palestinian prisoners and detainees went on hunger strike to challenge the conditions they face in the Israeli prison system.

Despite drawing worldwide attention to the issue, administrative detention continues today.

The infographic "A Guide to Administrative Detention" takes the perspective of an administrative detainee as they face daily stresses, uncertainties and indignities. This experience ranges from simply not knowing what they are accused of, to realising that lawyers and humanitarian agencies can do little to help them.
