Master thesis in Social anthropology:
EXPULSION AND CONFINEMENT OF NON-CITIZENS IN SWEDEN
- ‘Return-work’ and construction of ‘Cases’ in a Detention Centre
My master thesis is based on ethnographic material from participant observation in a Detention Centre. I closely followed the daily work of officers/the case workers. The Detention Centre where I conducted the field work is located north of Stockholm. In the Detention Centre non / citizens are held in custody before they are, as in most cases, deported from the territory of Sweden. This thesis discusses the practices and procedures of deportations and detention of these migrants. The detained migrants are handled as “cases” by the bureaucracy before they are deported from Swedish territory. The employees in the Detention Centre are constructed as cases out of a legal and administrative framework and in relation to a border regime and a deportation apparatus. The Immigration Authorities in Sweden have arranged different strategies that aim at convincing the detained to cooperate with the authorities and return to their home countries in a way that is seen as ‘voluntarily’. This thesis particularly high lights and discusses the transnational aspects of the practices. The practices particularly high lights and discusses the transnational aspects of these practices. The practices in the Detention Centre needs to be situated and understood in relation to transnational digital networks, political policies that are formulated within the European Union as well as transnational securitization of migration. In the conclusion I argue that the new world order and a new paradigm of power are visible in the practices of the Detention Centre. What I refer to as construction of cases is based on a network of connections with transnational reach as well as explicit programs within the governmental bodies (such as the Swedish Migration Authority).
