As of February 2021, there are 59 Syrians (including 10 minors) who are being held in three of Denmark's deportation camps, Avnstrup, Sjælsmark and Kærshovedgård.
These centers are described as being "prison-like environments".
Residents in these centers must report to police 3x a week and document their presence at the center 2x a day.
"The residents in the center are there because they have been denied asylum, not because they have a criminal record,” -The Danish Red Cross, the org that runs Avnstrup
Sjælsmark and Kærshovedgård are run by the Danish Prison and Probation Centers.
The first 6 months of detention in these deportation camps is meant to "motivate voluntary return". If the residents do not leave by then, the detention becomes a "punitive measure" according to a report by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights
refworld.org/pdfid/4ecf7740…
There have been protests, awareness campaigns, media storms and hunger strikes organized by asylum-seekers and human rights orgs in Denmark in protest of the conditions in these camps.
"Stop Killing Us Slowly" is a research report focused on the measures in the deportation camps meant to "motivate voluntary return" and the criminalisation of rejected asylum seekers in Denmark.

The Danish deportation centers have been called "unacceptable for people" and incompatible for human rights by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) because of the appalling conditions.
Single Syrian refugees without children will be sent to Kærshovedgård deportation camp where they may stay indefinitely, if they do not return to Syria.
