The Deportation Regime PDF ePub eBook

The Deportation Regime free pdf This important collection examines deportation as an increasingly global mechanism of state control. Anthropologists, historians, legal scholars, and sociologists consider not only the physical expulsion of noncitizens, but also the social discipline and labour subordination resulting from deportability, the threat of forced removal. They explore practices and experiences of deportation in regional and national settings from the U.S.-Mexico border to Israel, and from Somalia to Switzerland. They also address broader questions, including the ontological significance of freedom of movement- the historical antecedents of deportation, such as banishment and exile- and the development, entrenchment, and consequences of organizing sovereign power and framing individual rights by territory. Whether investigating the power that individual and corporate sponsors have over the fate of foreign labourers in Bahrain, the implications of Germany's temporary suspension of deportation orders for pregnant and ill migrants, or the significance of the detention camp, the contributors reveal how deportation reflects and reproduces notions about public health, racial purity, and class privilege. They also provide insight into how deportation and deportability are experienced by individuals, including Arabs, South Asians, and Muslims in the United States. One contributor looks at asylum claims in light of an unusual anti-deportation campaign mounted by Algerian refugees in Montreal- others analyze the European Union as an entity specifically dedicated to governing mobility inside and across its official borders. Addressing urgent issues related to human rights, international migration, and the extensive security measures implemented by nation-states since September 11, 2001, "The Deportation Regime" is a call for more attention to the sociopolitical logic and far-reaching effects of deportation, and to the way it is increasingly seen as a natural response by nation-states to the presence of unauthorized foreign migrants.
