This chapter focuses on research by conducting a broad survey of statistical trends in deportation practices across ten European countries plus Australia and the United States, using official data that was collected to provide comparative context for the Australian Deportation Project. It considers the surface of the complex web of local, national and supranational factors that influence deportation practices across the Global North. The increasing use of deportation appears to be a universal phenomenon across the Global North, driven by uncertainties arising from globalization and the ubiquity of the governmentality of unease’. Deportation statistics provided by the Swedish National Police and the Swedish Migration Board differ significantly, but a particular dataset produced by the Migration Board was finally settled upon. Deaths during deportation have been recorded in a number of European Union countries, with accelerated removals policies in many countries identified as the main factor driving the increasing use of force.
