By the use of emphasizing asylum seekers’ individual acting against reprisals this paper intends to present these people as independently acting subjects. As a matter of fact, these individuals are neither described as perpetrators nor as victims but as people who are forced to fight for survival within the realm of Austrian asylum procedures.
