Research Seminar with Martin Joormann: Studying the Danish, German and Swedish asylum systems and their appeal instances
The Sociology of Law Department arranges a series of research seminars inviting both local and international researchers who are conducting state of the art research within various areas of law and society.
At the seminar, Martin will present some of his work-in-progress, which he is currently conducting for his VR International Postdoc. This postdoc project is a collective case study of Danish, German and Swedish appeal instances that decide on the review of rejected asylum claims. The research builds on data gathered through semi-structured interviews with judges and other decision-makers who adjudicate asylum appeals. The study’s point of departure is to explore the varying extents to which these appeals are politicized in Germany, Sweden and Denmark (see attached reading for the seminar).
Reading for the seminar (open access): "Social class, economic capital and the Swedish, German and Danish asylum systems" in Refugees and the violence of welfare bureaucracies in Northern Europe (2020).
This is a digital seminar hosted on Zoom. A link to join the seminar will be posted here.
