The concept of Torturing Environments allows a better understanding of migration detention spaces and the impacts they have on people on the move. This chapter analyses the conditions and impacts derived from them, in spaces located in different border areas: Mexico (N=57), Greece (N=160) and Spain (N=110). The results indicate that the spaces analysed could be considered as torturing environments which generate tear and wear on people on the move. These spaces do not represent isolated cases but are examples of how migration policies use detention as part of a deterrence policy.
