Current Research

For his PhD project, Martin Joormann is studying legal decisions of precedent value that are written by the judges of the Swedish Migration Court of Appeal. His doctoral studies are meanwhile focused on the discursive legitimation of expulsion decisions. In order to deepen a discourse analysis of those legal documents which, as precedent decisions, legitimize the expulsion also of unwanted asylum seekers, Martin Joormann is conducting semi-structured interviews with judges who take decisions at the Swedish Migration Courts. Thereby, his research is generally interested in publicly available information (court decisions and other public legal documents), while it focuses more specifically on the direct and indirect communications between legal system and society.
