Abstract
Swedish migration politics is going through a radical change in 2016 when
restrictive temporary laws are accompanied by governmental plans of deporting up to 80,000 people the coming year.

Swedish migration politics is going through a radical change in 2016 when

This thesis takes a hold of these changes and investigates how the political ambition of deporting a radically increased amount of people has been made possible. More specifically, the thesis examines how the Swedish governmental discourse of detention and deportation has been influenced by the idea of security. By a combination of discourse analysis and securitization theory on governmental propositions and parliament reports from 1997-2012 the
thesis outlines a pattern and development. A process of securitization of detention and deportation, in the long run of migration itself, has occurred since the new millennium and security has been incorporated into the policy-area. A dichotomy that categorizes Sweden and its belonging institutions, which extends to Europe, along human values and asylum seekers that are detained and deported along meanings like criminality and illegality legitimizes and recreates the discourse itself. The thesis highlights the importance of studying how political discourses are constructed with a notion of security, and how these discourses of insecurities can in turn effect the legal system in the country.
