The Making of Migration : The Biopolitics of Mobility at Europe's Borders Paperback / softback

Part of the Society and Space series

Paperback / softback


The Making of Migration addresses the rapid phenomenon that has become one of the most contentious issues in contemporary life: how are migrants governed as individual subjects and as part of groups?

What are the modes of control, identification and partitions that migrants are subjected to?Bringing together an ethnographically grounded analysis of migration, and a critical theoretical engagement with the security and humanitarian modes of governing migrants, the book pushes us to rethink notions that are central in current political theory such as "multiplicity" and subjectivity.

This is an innovative and sophisticated study; deploying migration as an analytical angle for complicating and reconceptualising the emergence of collective subjects, mechanisms of individualisation, and political invisibility/visibility.

A must-read for students of Migration Studies, Political Geography, Political Theory, International Relations, and Sociology.
