Open Lecture with Postdoctoral Fellow Maja Sager

Contested boundaries. Asylum seeking migrants’ experiences of constrained mobility and community building in the UK.
Maja

The presentation is based on material from an ethnographic study with groups and networks organised by and for irregular migrants and asylum seekers in Manchester, UK. The paper draws on two recurring themes in the material: constrained mobility on the one hand and support practices on the other hand. I analyse how a set of legislative, administrative and social mechanisms in the British asylum reception system constrains mobility and hence effect isolation in the everyday life of migrants seeking asylum. I also reflect upon the ways in which a women’s migration rights group respond to the conditions of constrained mobility and consider the significance of community building and mutual support in this context.

Maja Sager is a COFAS Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Gender Studies. She is currently working with the project ”Contested Boundaries” in which she explores the experiences and practices of organisations that support and/or organize undocumented migrants and refused asylum seekers in Malmö, Sweden; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Manchester, UK.
