Deportation article collection
Deportation is now the most important form of immigration enforcement not only in the contemporary world, but probably in the history of humanity. It is now the fallback not just to every immigration policy failure, but to a wide range of other failures.
Given the range of immigration and wider social issues to which deportation is now offered as a solution, there is an urgent need to understand it in much greater detail. Exactly how does deportation work? Why has it risen to such prominence globally as a mechanism for ‘managing’ immigration? What are the impacts of deportation on those deported, on the societies that deport them, and on the societies to which they are deported? What implications does deportation have for the future of citizenship and the sovereign state?
