Research profile seminar

Annika Lindberg will present her dissertation 'Governing the Deportation Limbo: State Responses to Non-deported Migrants in Denmark and Sweden', which explores how Denmark and Sweden address the so-called deportation gap.

Annika Lindberg will present her dissertation 'Governing the Deportation Limbo', which explores how Denmark and Sweden address the so-called deportation gap.

Building on ethnographic research and interviews with street level officials in migration-related detention centres, departure centres and migration offices in Denmark and Sweden, it traces the enforcement of policies designed to pressure rejected asylum seekers and other deportable noncitizens into leaving the territory - or make them disappear.

Conceptualizing these policies as a continuum of state violence, the dissertation discusses how exceptional state action is rendered ordinary in the everyday processes of deportation enforcement, as well as their political, legal and human costs.
