Surveillance over Life Production Turkish Migrant Workers in Germany



SURVEILLANCE IN GERMANY AFTER 9/11 The case of immigrants from Turkey
Topal, Çağatay (2008-01-01)
After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, surveillance pressure on immigrants increased considerably. The trend was the globalization of surveillance of the world population but especially of immigrants. 9/11 was not a turning point, however, since surveillance was already headed towards being globalized. The post-9/11 context accelerated this process. The economic and political developments that have taken place after 9/11 demonstrate that the processes of globalization, immigration and surveillan...
Surveillance of immigrants from Turkey in Germany: From the disciplinary society to the society of control
Topal, Çağatay (SAGE Publications, 2011-11-01)
The surveillance of immigrants from Turkey in Germany functions on two seemingly contradictory levels: on the one hand, it de facto recognizes their inclusion in German society; on the other hand, it serves as an instrument to exclude them as '(un)suitable' foreign subjects within that society. Since 1961, this surveillance has slowly but surely changed its character. The aim of this article is to examine these changes through the lens of the different characteristics of so-called disciplinary and control s...
Surveillance with wireless sensor networks in obstruction: Breach paths as watershed contours
Onur, Ertan; Delic, Hakan; Akarun, Lale (Elsevier BV, 2010-02-01)
For surveillance applications of wireless sensor networks, analysis of sensing coverage and quality of sensing is crucial. For rough terrains where obstacles block the sensing capability, region-based approaches must be employed to determine the sensing quality. In this paper, we present a method to determine the breach paths and the deployment quality defined as the minimum of the maximum detection probabilities on the breach paths in the presence of obstacles. We propose the utilization of watershed segme...
Surveillance and the transformation of public sphere in the Ottoman Empire
Ergut, Ferdan (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2007-12-1)
This article aims to historicize the transformation of the public sphere in the late Ottoman Empire as an unintended consequence of the surveillance practices of the state. This transformation is explained with reference to two crucial large scale processes: state-making and capitalism. It takes the police and policing practices of the state as an arena within which the struggle over the control of the public sphere was waged. By analyzing those practices especially in relation to two different social group...
