Abstract: The paper will examine the intersection and interplay between criminal, civil and administrative detention in recent High Court of Australia case law. Recent years in Australia have seen a massive expansion in new forms of involuntary detention, but most importantly the post-sentence detention of sex offenders. The ultimate injustice of this new civil-criminal hybrid is examined and contrasted with the approach taken to involuntary preventive detention by the European Court of Human Rights.
