Asyl-Verwaltung kraft Wissen: Die Herstellung von Entscheidungswissen in einer Schweizer Asylbehörde
How do administrative government agencies deal with the often complex and difficult histories of flight and asylum, how does a `case' emerge from this, and how does a decision arise? In the context of European attempts at coordination, such questions are not merely of academic relevance, but are also socially and politically relevant. This volume contributes to an improved understanding of the structures and shifts in local administrative practices in a highly explosive and important sphere of action. It gathers together essays that deal with the action of government agencies in various European locations, from perspectives informed by sociology, political science and administrative studies.
