About this book

This book analyses post-deportation outcomes and focuses on what happens to migrants and failed asylum seekers after deportation. Although there is a growing literature on detention and deportation, academic research on post-deportation is scarce. The book produces knowledge about the consequences of forced removal for deportee’s adjustment and “reintegration” in so-called “home” country. As the pattern of migration changes, new research approaches are needed. This book contributes to establish a more multifaceted picture of criminalization of migration and adds novel aspects and approaches, both theoretically and empirically, to the field of migration research.

Reviews

“Too often deportation has been imagined from the point of view of the states and societies from which people are expelled. But what happens to people after they are deported? What forms of life do they create in the countries to which they are sent? What dangers and challenges do they encounter following ‘removal’? Theoretically nuanced, empirically rich, and geographically diverse, the essays collected in After Deportation fundamentally rethink the time and space of deportation. This book greatly enriches our understanding of post-deportation worlds.” (William Walters, Professor, Carleton University, Canada)

“Rich in ethnographic case studies, this excellent volume is part of a growing trend among critical academics who shed light on the other side of deportation. The different chapters trace, document and analyze diverse deportation trajectories, following the lives of those who suffered forceful or “voluntarily” removal from the societies where they thought and hoped they could live their lives. Contributors manage to strike an inspiring balance between, on the one hand, unique insight into the economic and social hardship that is involved in post-deportation existences, and, on the other hand, astute attention to the creative agency of those who must reinvent their lives after an abrupt physical, emotional and geographical interruption cause by deportation.” (Barak Kalir, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands)
