EU-Turkey Deportation Regime

Deportation regime is a  system and the ordered doing of deportations. A deportation regime refers to more than a bilateral collaboration between two sovereign nation states such as Greece and Turkey. Rather, policies, rules and legislation, the Hellenic Police, Frontex, EASO, IOM and private tourist company all together facilitate deportations. This network of different state and non-state actors that facilitate deportations we describe as the EU-Turkey deportation regime. In this section we will explore and make visible the different elements that constitute the EU-Turkey deportation regime and write in-depth analysis.

Infrastructure of Deportation: in our first post about the EU-Turkey deportation regime we will explore a general overview to focus on the infrastructural network that facilitates deportations from Lesvos to Turkey.
