Abstract

Life as Ransom

Health care professionals experience ethical dilemmas in the treatment of asylum seekers. Political discussions, depiction and the intertwining of medical and judicial parameters play a role. From a theoretical position on ethics and human rights, we discuss the ethical dilemmas within mental health care where health care professionals find themselves at odds in finding viable solutions for underlying conflicts in fundamental values. This article is based on interviews and focus groups with health care professionals in mental health care about ethical dilemmas with and concerning asylum seekers. The data are analyzed with a discourse analysis on three (3) themes, namely the conditions in which asylum seekers find themselves, the sharing of information with other institutions and the role of advocacy.
