Keywords/Abstract
This paper is an investigation into the official welcome given to Islamic refugees arriving in Denmark. The Ministry of Refugees, Immigration and Integration Affairs has produced an official welcome letter in English and Danish but this presents a dilemma. The letter is a contradiction: it states that the refugees are welcome on certain conditions, and as such are citizens for a time. However, they will never become Danish citizens - they will be citizens of a refugee camp.
