Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to examine to what extent the children of rejected asylum-seekers are impacted by the motivational enhancement measures; a legal initiative in the Danish immigration law aimed at motivating rejected asylum-seekers to leave Denmark by limiting their rights and freedoms. Using a combination of content analysis of secondary material and semi-structured interviews with respondents working in direct contact with rejected asylum-seekers in Danish deportation centres, it has been possible to derive how the motivational enhancement measures impact the physical environment and social conditions for the children at the deportation centre Avnstrup. Building on the normative legal principle of the child’s best interests, the thesis applies the theoretical concepts of structural violence and biopolitics to account for how the motivational enhancement measures affect the children’s social existence in the detention centre negatively, causing a deterioration of their well-being in a political attempt to force their parents out of Denmark.
