Are you interested in understanding how and why deportations have become a central tool of European migration control, despite its evident high cost and limited effectiveness? Are you interested in understanding these issues from a historical perspective?
If yes, please save the date for a presentation by Miika Tervonen. A detailed abstract will follow!
It will be great to know if you plan to join us using the registration link here. A light lunch will be served!
