Symposium “Detention in Japan – Isn’t it arbitrary detention?”
We live without any concern every day, which is built on the right to liberty allowing us to act based on our own will.
Imagine if you are forced to be hospitalised, or detained separated from your family, or lose your job only due to suspicion of committing a crime, or to be deprived of connection necessary for rehabilitation. Do you think such detention or treatment are needed?
The UN provides the mechanism to examine whether a case submitted by an individual should be considered as arbitrary detention. You can utilise this mechanism for cases in Japan.
We will organise the symposium to gain a better understanding on current circumstances of detention in Japan and discuss the right to liberty.
