This brown bag lunch presentation will focus on the impact of removal on individuals who are in several relevant respects well integrated in their country of residence. A complementary perspective will be presented by looking outward to the physical, psychological, economic and social prospective experience of the noncitizen in the event of being physically removed from the state of long-term residence.
