/ba.ca/ with New Naratif: Lost Childhood — Children in Malaysia’s Immigration Detention Centres

Welcome to Community Corner, a space for our members to catch up on events that they have missed, read team recommendations, and write to us! 

Back in July, we brought together our New Naratif community for yet another reading group discussion. This time, we focused on New Naratif’s Forced Migration Researcher, Joshua Low’s recent articles on children in Malaysia’s immigration detention centres

According to figures from the Home Ministry of Malaysia, there are 1,030 children currently held across 20 immigration detention centres in Malaysia. 43% of them are girls and a third of them reported to be lone sojourners, unaccompanied or separated minors without their guardians.
