Patters of Rebordering: Migrants, Refugees and Fences

Goal: The project deals with the ongoing processes of migration and border-making in Europe and the world. As the recent refugee and migrant crisis has been both one of the most important and most divisive political issues in recent European history, we can observe new patters of rebordering across Europe. At the same time, migration, refugees and new borders have not been an exclusively European phenomenon. The problem of migration has existed for decades without much public debate either by the EU or by the international community, with the UN as the only actor to consequently pick out the topic as a central theme of transnational development. The goal is to understand specifics of these processes and identify mechanisms producing new rebordering.

Examining the ongoing processes of migration in Europe and beyond - Case studies focusing on Europe, Russia, the Middle East, and South America - Integrates issues of current migration and boundary-making processes - Various experts discussing social and political factors pertaining to current dynamics of migration and boundary-making in different cultural settings - Sociological and political analyses of current trends in transnational migration and rebordering - Brings together studies from different continents This book deals with the ongoing processes of migration and boundary-(re)making in Europe and other parts of the world. It takes stock of recent and hitherto unpublished research on the refugee crisis in Europe, migration dynamics in the Middle East and migration flows in Africa and Latin America, specifically in relation to their political, social and cultural framing. In particular, chapters in this collection focus on newer cases of transnational migration and their socio-political implications. Alongside the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe, which can be seen as one of the most divisive political issues in recent European history, new patterns of migration and re-bordering can also be seen across Europe, the Middle East and beyond. These include both the rise of anti-immigration populism within the nation-states and practices of discouraging migration at the regional level such as the EU.
