Abstract

The increasing use of deportation appears to be a universal phenomenon across the Global North, driven by uncertainties arising from globalization and the ubiquity of ‘the governmentality of unease’ (Bigo 2002). However, against this broad backdrop of apparent uniformity, it is important to ask what differences can be discerned between localities, countries and regions so that the factors that promote and moderate the will to exclude can be better understood. In this chapter I conduct a broad survey of statistical trends in deportation practices across ten European countries plus Australia and the US, using official data that was collected to provide comparative context for The Australian Deportation Project.

Keywords: deportation, border control, comparative deportation
