Glasgow University Settlement Find a Solution Report 2016: Immigration Bail Observation Project (IBOPS), Susannah Paul and Daniel Ferguson, University of Glasgow, 2016 [contains the Guide and Introduction listed under Publications on this website]

‘The Campsfield [Bail Observation] Project served as a blueprint for the IBOPS [Immigration Bail Observation Project Scotland] and these reports captured a wealth of anecdotal evidence and statistics pertaining to the Bail Proceedings in England and Wales. These provided a useful comparative tool. Additionally, the second Campsfield Report further warned us against treating the FTT Guidance for Judges as correlating to what occurs in practice.’
