This chapter analyzes the conditions of ‘hostile hospitality’ as they appear in strategies pursued by Norwegian authorities to expel refused asylum seekers. It describes a distinct field of politics, called ‘the funnel of expulsion’, emerging from the broader sets of strategies of social exclusion and expulsion directed at the ‘unruly’ inhabitants of the globalized world. The chapter examines the complex and often contradictory interplay of exclusions and rights which define the funnel, focusing on two main institutional domains: work and welfare. It also considers the openings for aid. The final section examines how the ‘funnel of expulsion’ works in relation to Foucauldian concepts of governmentality and biopolitics.

Keywords:   Norway, immigration policy, asylum seekers, work, welfare, aid, governmentality, biopolitics, migration politics, migration control
