Mieke Kox’s PhD research focuses on the legal consciousness of unauthorized migrants. She examines how immigration laws, policies and practices regarding apprehension, (alternatives for) immigration detention and/or deportation matter for unauthorized migrants. Using an ethnographic approach and following unauthorized migrants from their apprehension by the alien’s police up to their deportation from or release in the Netherlands, she tries to explain how their legal consciousness influences their thoughts on the future.
