Facilitating Deportation in Welfare Offices – Outsourcing Migration Control

Borrelli, Lisa Marie (School of Social work, HES-SO Valais/Wallis)

Social services, organizations offering integration courses and language certificates, and competence centers for integration in Switzerland are facing an increase in migration control tasks generally undertaken by migration authorities. This broadening of responsibilities, referred to as ‘outsourcing’ of migration control and management, manifests through policies that force social services to share confidential data with migration authorities. These obligations of data sharing affect migrants’ prospects to stay in the country and clash with several agencies, and their role of offering support and care to their clients.
