Enduring Uncertainty: Deportation, Punishment and Everyday Life

Enduring Uncertainty: Deportation, Punishment and Everyday Life

Bridget Holtom of the University of Glasgow reviews Enduring Uncertainty: Deportation, Punishment and Everyday Life, by Ines Hasselberg. Dr. Hasselberg focuses on the lived experience of immigration policy and processes, and provides insights into the deportation process as it is felt and understood by those subjected to it. She presents an ethnography of deportation and deportability experienced by migrants convicted of criminal offenses in England and Wales. The perspectives developed here – on due process in immigration appeals, migrant surveillance and control, social relations and sense of self, and compliance and resistance – are important for broader understandings of border control policy and human rights.
