Racism, Global Apartheid and Disobedient Mobilities: The Politics of Detention and Deportation in Europe and Denmark

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


This paper provides a reading of the European border regime taking special interest in Denmark through an analysis of deportation and detention. This focus allows addressing how the border regime manages and controls territories and populations by obeying a colonial and imperial logic that is a de facto enforcement of apartheid on a global and a local level, and involves European political, economic and legal frameworks. The enforcement of these frameworks is directly connected to the desire to repress the disobedience to the global apartheid structure practiced by migrants and refugees from the global south, as they move across colonially drawn national borders. Indeed, camps, border control, deportations, and other forms of state violence are tools used to manage the political and socioeconomic inequalities produced by historical colonialism and the present round of neocolonial dispossessions in the global south.
