What is everyday life in closed detention centres like for immigrants in Norway, Italy and other European countries? How does it differ from or resemble being in prison?
What kind of impact do immigration control objectives have on the nature of contemporary policing?
How is a border surveillance system created? What kind of data gets collected, who has access and why, and what is the potential impact on the individual populations involved?
What type of punishment is deportation? And what is the legal and historical context of deportation?
