Building on recent scholarship that contends that Britain’s 1905 AliensAct was a ‘turning point in the evolution of refugee law’,

specifically, the paper discusses whether the CRC has effected the Swedish AliensAct and the regulations regarding entitlement to health care, or whether Sweden has jealously guarded its sovereign right to regulate immigration. Or, phrased in more general terms, have rights enumerated in an international
administration of the aliens legislation. Critics, who in a number of cases are supported by the ombudsman, have pointed out that the AliensAct is inprecise, open for construction and not subjected to judicial control. For the individual alien ,expulsion is as serious as a criminal sanction, and may appear as
alleged insanitary habits in immigrants’ homes. 155 In 1905, the AliensAct clearly spelt out for the first time the conditions which defined undesirable migrants, thus constituting “the first nail in the coffin of free movement.” 156 Among those, a person qualifying as “a lunatic or an idiot,” along
or recognition as a refugee - is of little if any importance. In fact, it is only within the ambit of aliens police law that the question of refugee status is of some consequence. The Norwegian AliensAct of 27 July 1956 is strongly influenced by the Swedish AliensAct of 1954. The Act is
Can confrontation of mortality – facing down our fears and denial of death – make what time we have into a better life? We think so. Through a study of the issues and experience with dying individuals and their loved ones, we will show evidence of how this happens, and how it might be made to happen more often. Years ago in the U.S., as is often still true in some cultures, death and dying were seen up close and personal from an early age. The old and infirm spent their final weeks and months at home, surrounded and cared for by relatives or close friends. It’s a system that worked for centuries. By weaving the experience of dying into the souls of the living, generation after generation learned to accept the cyclical nature of life, and to experience joy even in its lingering moments. But thanks to relentless urbanization, increasingly mobile societies and the loosening of family ties in the 20th century, dying happened more and more in isolation. People died in cold, bright-lit intensive care units or in impersonal nursing homes and institutions, and the notions of staying young forever or prolonging life at all costs turned dying into some alien act, something to be feared and fought. Along with the familiarity with life’s end, the celebration of life itself became diminished.
