Protecting Childhood: The Struggle to End Child Immigration Detention was a New Naratif event for Malaysians revolving around New Naratif's explainer articles “Don’t Come Back, Soldiers Are Here”: Children in Malaysia’s Immigration Detention Centres and “The Political Decision is to Release Them”: The 12-Year Struggle to End Child Immigration Detention in Malaysia. With the Malaysian Home Ministry's stated intention to completely end the detention of children in immigration detention centres, New Naratif organised this event to inform Malaysians on what more should be done for children and migrants in Malaysia
