Lawyers for Human Rights and the Global Detention Project developed this submission for consideration by the Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) at its 107th session where it will consider Zimbabwe’s state report as part of the 5th -11th periodic review of Zimbabwe under the International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD).
This submission focuses on human rights concerns relating to Zimbabwe’s immigration enforcement policies and practices, with a focus on detention and the treatment of at-risk groups. It is based in large measure on research undertaken by LHR and builds on recommendations issued to Zimbabwe during its review before the Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in 2022.
