Most of the time, and for many reasons, people go along with surveillance’. The result is a circulation of various representations 46 BREAKING DOWN ANONYMITY of an individual in databases, which Gary Marx calls digital shadows. ‘(…) now, with so many new ways of collecting personal data and the growth of data banks, we see the rise of a shadow self based on images in distant, often networked computers’ (Marx 2005: 23). Haggerty and Ericson (2000: 613) point to roughly the same phenomenon when they speak of ‘data doubles’ that ‘(…) circulate in a host of different centres of calculation and serve as markers for access to resources, services and power in ways which are often unknown to its referent’.

Panopticon Europe is not a ‘factory of correction’. Its aim is not disciplining and correcting undesirable migrants. Panopticon Europe is designed as a ‘factory of exclusion and of people habituated to their status of the excluded’. (Engbersen 2001: 242) In other words, the state gathers information on the doings and whereabouts of irregular immigrants with the explicit aim to exclude them from both its territorial and membership associations. Post-panopticism then brings us to the realm of the surveillance state.
