Punishing the Alien: The Sentencing of Foreign Offenders in Slovenia

The authors examine the question of foreignness, which appears in many shades; citizenship is thus just one of the many aspects contributing to society’s stance on ‘foreignness’. After sketching the current prison situation in Europe, the authors analyse the situation of foreigners in the Slovenian criminal justice system. On the one hand, we can perceive a general turn towards harsher treatment of foreign offenders – there have been more convictions and more foreigners in prison recently. However, a more detailed analysis shows that with regard to cases of homicide, foreigners may even be receiving more lenient sentences compared to Slovenian citizens.
KEY WORDS: foreigners, prison, criminal justice, court, sentencing

Crimmigration in Slovenia

Crimmigration in Slovenia The article discusses “crimmigration” (i.e. the criminalization of migration) in Slovenia. It evaluates elements of crimmigration in the legal framework, institutions and policies. The analysis of the framing of the topic at the normative level of institutions is accompanied by an examination of the implementation of specific procedures in practice. An exploration of policies and expert opinions is combined with an analysis of the effects that crimmigration has on migrants. Corroborated with the migrants’ experience with crimmigration measures, the article concludes that migration policy in Slovenia is becoming stricter and progressively headed in the direction of increased criminalization of migration.
KEY WORDS: crimmigration, Slovenia, migration, asylum
