This socio-legal cartography is a collective case study of asylum appeals across three national contexts. It applies ethnographic methods of data collection and analysis in order to map the spatiotemporality of legal norms and practices. The study’s point of departure is to explore the varying extents to which asylum appeals are politicized in Germany, Sweden and Denmark.
