Beskrivning av projektet
Following the ‘refugee crisis’, the diversity and number of people who are deported from Finland have been rapidly increasing. Yet, social-scientific research on deportations is still scarce in Finland. This research project conducts action-based research on asylum seekers’ deportations from three thematic perspectives: 1) laws, policies and practices regarding deportation, 2) trust and mistrust in civic activism on deportations, and 3) asylum seekers’ deportation journeys. The objective of this multidisciplinary research is to yield new societal, theoretical and methodological openings regarding critical assessment of asylum seekers’ deportability. This objective is supported by the action-based research method that enhances participants’ agency.
