How ever, the idea of borders has changed not only over time but also due to scholarly perspective and respective episteme. Borders have not disappeared — not even in a unified and predominantly peaceful Europe — but rather they have changed, become more varied and, in a certain sense, mobile, taking on an important role in the everyday lives of more people than ever before. The book also addresses crucial policy areas such as unemployment, citizenship, social exclusion, cohesion, core-periphery relations, the democratic deficit , and enlargement. Although the trajectories of their movements do not cross international boundaries, most are legally prevented from ever gaining full legal status in their destinations, based on the status they hold within China's hukou system of household registration. However, when diverse cultures get together, differences may be exacerbated and reinforced. This is done through a focus on the communities that encounter the fences in their everyday practice and a discussion of how the fences are producers of and sites of resistance. Divided in three parts, the first part assesses what is at stake in cross-border governance issues and whether the integrative trend in the region will be maintained or stalled in the years to come.
While geographers have increasingly focused on these practices at a broad, institutional scale and in sites in the Global North, less attention has been given to the mundane and often unseen processes of regulation and restriction that take place beyond physical borders and outside of the formal spaces and practices of the state immigration apparatus in the Global South. Taken together this edited collection will be of interest to border scholars as well as students of European politics more generally. This book makes an original contribution to the literature and stands to set the agenda for a new dimension of border studies. Here the enactment of humanitarian principles changes older forms of borderwork concerned with stopping, defending and securing territory to work concerned with securing lives. Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index. Also, this paper adds some twists to Scott's thesis on Zomia, and argues that we must not downplay the importance of the frame of nation-states in shaping the lifeworlds of border inhabitants. Furthermore, it is now widely accepted that borders do not just hinder communication and the formation of relationships, but also channel and prefigure them in a positive way.
Under conditions of strangeness the stranger is a 'here today, gone tomorrow' figure. The article offers the concept of interlegal jurisdictional games as an alternative point of entry to study these dynamics. Such a focus reveals the necessity of investigating how governing from afar affects the possibilities and tendencies to securitise as well as desecuritise, within as well as beyond elite settings. Frontex, the citizen-detective and the war on terror - Nick Vaughan-Williams 6. Frontex, the citizen-detective and the war on terror Nick Vaughan-Williams 6. This paper tries to outline some of the problems brought about when processing big amounts of data for the purpose of European immigration and identification policies. Aus mehreren Anlässen lohnt es sich derzeit, über die grenzüberschreitende Dimension der Raumentwicklung Bayerns nachzudenken.
His work productively intersects with recent arguments by border scholars that borders are not lines but represent spatial and temporal processes, that can be remade, resisted, or undone through practice and performance Norman 2012, Jones 2012, Salter 2010, Doevenspeck 2011, Prokkola 2008 , Rumford 2008, Doty 2007, Balibar 2002, Newman and Paasi 1998, Paasi 1996 see also Mountz 2010 on state as performance. Nation and Identity in Contemporary Europe takes a fully interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the 'national question'. A principal contribution of the volume is its scrutiny of how borders are enacted and perceived in and through the everyday, and of how such production and construal can make sense as acts of resistance to various forms of governing. International migration is not a threat but rather a process that offers migrants the possibility to improve their households' living standards. Croci, Journal of European Integration European integration, the collapse of state socialism and the relative decline of social democracy have left only two dominant European ideologies: nationalism and the free market. This site is like a library, you could find million book here by using search box in the widget. The book explores the ability of citizens to participate in the making of borders, and the empowerment that can result from this bordering and debordering activity.
Traditionally thought of as an English summer game, limited in appeal to Britain and its Commonwealth, cricket has, in the past a few years, achieved a global profile. . These changes are perhaps particularly salient in the supranational space of the European Union, where new, diverse governance arrangements have emerged for the control of borders and migrations. Beyond these common forms of collective resistance, there exists an incredible richness of more individual and imperceptible acts of borderland resistance, such as filing away or etching fingertips to fool the fingerprint machines and the so called Eurodac system. The authors also indicate the role these elements play in further European integration. It challenges the idea that regional policy is a form of wealth distribution.
We now live in a generalized state of strangeness, one consequence of globalization: we no longer know where our community ends and another one begins. Conceptualizing the agency of migration as a heuristic key in analyzing border regimes is a perspective which we have developed jointly with many. But, on the other hand, the distinctions between economic, social and political milieus at the two sides of the border may give rise to heightened senses of difference and lead to diverging identities. The book explores the ability of citizens to participate in the making of borders, and the empowerment that can result from this bordering and debordering activity. Vienna's cultural district Museumsquartier and the planned Humboldt Forum on Berlin's Schlossplatz illustrate two of the most controversial sites of urban reconstruction in Central Eastern Europe since the 1990s.
This hypothesized shift requires a new approach on borders. This book was previously published as a special issue of the Journal of Contemporary European Studies. Relevant types of practice have recently been identified by fresh conceptual approaches which address problems of bordering, broadly understood as the social construction of borders by various actors Johnson and Jones 2014;van Houtum, Kramsch, and Zierhofer 2005. The bordering practices of the European nation states have now both been dispersed into third countries and come to include frontline bureaucrats within the nation states, including social workers and healthcare staff. The point of the exercise is not to establish which is the most accurate. However, the changing nature of borders cannot be reduced to a shift from the edges to the interior of a polity. Current thinking on Europe's borders is characterised by a tension between, on the one hand, the idea of 'network Europe', in which the importance of internal borders is much reduced as a result of the flows and mobilities characteristic of the single market and the 'four freedoms', and, on the other, the idea that Europe is being 'rebordered' as the result of security concerns over the threat of terrorism, illegal immigration, trafficking in drugs and people, and so forth.
This paper draws on the growing body of geographical literature on carceral spaces and carcerality to explore alternatives sites of incarceration in everyday life and also to look beyond the state as a carceral actor and agent. Furthermore, if we seriously want to acknowledge Balibar's notion that the border is everywhere but nowhere, we also need to abandon the idea that there has to be consensus for borders to exist and execute power, Rumford argues. Setting current issues and conflicts in their broad historical context, the book reaffirms that 'nations' are not 'natural' phenomena but 'constructed' forms of social identity whose future will be determined in the social arena. In these zones, men are at once displaced, forced into migration, yet also confined to house arrest. The seminars, which took place in 2014—2015, involved a range of contributors including academics, policy-makers and practitioners, with the academics drawn from a range of disciplines, including politics, cultural history, visual culture, economic geography, sociology, and planning. Examining the everyday practices of the state is crucial to our understanding of the multiple ways that governments regulate transnational migration.
Taken together this edited collection will be of interest to border scholars as well as students of European politics more generally. This book identifies the cosmopolitan stranger as the most significant contemporary figure of the stranger, one adept at negotiating the 'confined spaces' of globalization in order to promote new forms of social solidarity and connect with distant others. The diversity of geographical concepts in academic scholarship, illus trated, for example, by the recently emerging conceptualisation of regions as polysemic spaces e. However, the publicity they generated worked to demonstrate how the mundane behaviours of specific categories of couples make them suspect. The ethnography in original fieldwork settings coupled with the strategy of researching the European, national and local levels of policy-making bring insights into their interconnection and the ways in which those levels exercise mutual influence. Welche Bedeutung nehmen Grenzen als Raumelement vor dem Hintergrund der dynamischen Entwicklung nun ein? Cities are considered key sites for the inclusion of migrants, affording them substantial urban citizenship.
The article builds upon critical border studies for the study of the European migration crisis that take into account the digital, both in terms of telecommunications infrastructure and media platforms. In particular, interdisciplinary scale theory is discussed for its potential contribution. The analysis is structured around three story lines that disclose border securitization as multiple and aims to problematize the assumption that states, as entities holding sovereign authority,fully determine matters of border securitization. Our paper will explore Eurodac, a large biometric information database concerning asylum applications and irregular border crossings, as part of the emerging European Big Data Economy. In Citizenship and Democratic Control in Contemporary Europe a distinguished group of scholars argues that a democratically reconstructed Europe requires a new approach centred around a concept of citizenship which is neither individualistic nor ethnically based but is concerned with the empowerment of individuals. An exclusive focus on crisis, we argue, is misleading. In these encounters, the legal status of the person becomes an ordering mode, and the potential disease to be treated becomes a subordinate object of concern.
