Shahram Khosravi, Stockholm University: A Diaspora of deportees: the case of young Afghan men
This talk is about post-deportation outcomes. It focuses on what happens to Afghan asylum seekers after deportation from Sweden. Although there is a growing literature on detention and deportation, academic research on post-deportation is scarce. My previous research on irregular migration and undocumentedness in Sweden has started to bring out the significance of analyzing what happens after deportation. Theoretically, based on the experiences of Afghan deportees I argue that deportation, rather than being the end of migratory adventure, becomes just another phase of their deportspora, in which they are exposed to a continuum of expulsion.
