This chapter provides a theoretical scaffolding and vocabulary for understanding the harm enacted in immigration detention facilities. Drawing on research concerning the production of psychological pain in prisons, it highlights the clandestine mechanisms through which carceral institutions inflict pain in socio-legal contexts where overt violence is not socially or legally tenable. These insights concerning carceral power inform this book’s analysis of visitor experiences in Australian immigration detention facilities.
