The project “Inside the deportation gap – social membership for non-deported persons” intends to study the access to basic social rights of persons who have a deportation order yet who for various reasons cannot get deported. The project will be based on case studies in Austria and two further European countries. The main focus of the research is the production of social membership in public policy making, especially through the discretionary power of street-level bureaucrats.
Project duration: Jan 2015 - May 2018
