Global Migration Seminar:

After Deportation – The Case of Afghan Deportees
September 12, 13:15-15:00

The main focus of this talk is post-deportation outcomes. It focuses on what happens to Afghan asylum seekers after deportation from Sweden.

Based on the experiences of Afghan deportees, Khosravi argues that deportation, rather than being the end of migratory adventure, becomes just another phase of their deportspora, in which they are exposed to a continuum of expulsion.

Lecturer: Shahram Khosravi, Professor in Social Anthropology, Stockholm University

When: 13:15 – 15:00, September 12

More about the seminar

The main focus of this talk is post-deportation outcomes. It focuses on what happens to Afghan asylum seekers after deportation from Sweden. Although there is a growing literature on detention and deportation, academic research on post-deportation is scarce.

Khosravi’s previous research on irregular migration and undocumentedness in Sweden bring out the significance of analyzing what happens after deportation.

Based on the experiences of Afghan deportees, he argues that deportation, rather than being the end of migratory adventure, becomes just another phase of their deportspora, in which they are exposed to a continuum of expulsion.
