Global Migration Seminar: Go Home? The performance politics of UK immigration control

Time: 9/20/2017 at 9:00 AM,
Location: School of Global Studies, Campus Linné - C417, Konstepidemins väg 2

Event type: Research profile seminar

During this Global Migration Seminar, we will learn about the experiences from the project 'Mapping Immigration Controversies', that investigated the effects of UK government publicity campaigns on immigration. We will see how the UK's campaigns were not so much oriented to macro-economic concerns and the implementation of the law, but rather sought to perform and pump-up a toughness on immigration by mobilising images and emotions.

Lecturer: Dr. Yasmin Gunaratnam, Goldsmiths College, London

Global Migration Seminar: Politics of Abandonment? The everyday management of rejected asylum-seekers in Denmark and Sweden

Time: 12/13/2017 at 9:00 AM,
Location: School of Global Studies, Campus Linné - C417, Konstepidemins väg 2

Event type: Research profile seminar

In the past years, Danish and Swedish governments have increased their efforts to remove rejected asylum-seekers from the territory, by expanding immigration detention and establishing departure centers (Denmark) or withdrawing welfare support (Sweden) for rejected individuals. Building on preliminary findings from ethnographic field work in immigration detention and removal centers in Denmark and Sweden, the seminar explores how state efforts to control and remove rejected asylum-seekers are translated into practice.

Lecturer: Annika Lindberg, PhD Candidate at the Institute of Sociology, University of Bern.
