Social class, economic capital and the Swedish, German and Danish asylum systems
in Refugees and the violence of welfare bureaucracies in Northern Europe

The chapter provides an introduction to the constructions of refugees in and through political discourses and legal procedures in Sweden, Germany and Denmark.

The chapter highlights the relevance of class in informing the perceptions of judges, special regulations on entry to a country and restrictive deterrence measures.
