Different positions of uncertain lives

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch


On the basis of my ethnographic research in Denmark and Spain, I will investigate and compare four different positions of illegality in two different national contexts. Legal and institutional practices on the one hand produce the conditions for migrant illegality as such, but are also decisive for both the lived experience as irregular migrant and the opportunities for agency and strategizing among migrants.
