About this book

This volume scrutinizes new developments in contemporary mobility and migration politics and shows that they are based on a mix of traditional coercive interventions and less repressive and indirect practices.

Reviews

'Disciplining the Transnational Mobility of People offers a very important opening onto the world of differentially managed mobilities, in contrast to the more conventional understanding of mobility governance as a strategy of enforced immobilization. This is a significant contribution to debates on states' attempts to govern mobility and immobility today.' - Mat Coleman, The Ohio State University, USA

'As the title suggests this book is not just another survey of migration control policies. The authors break new ground as they deconstruct policies designed to discipline the movement of individuals across borders. The book is an innovative and critical treatment of the politics of migration and I highly recommend it.' - James F. Hollifield, Southern Methodist University, USA

'This book offers an exciting and thought-provoking treatise on the disciplinary impulses informing contemporary migration enforcement. This is an innovative must-read for anyone seeking meaning in the chaotic yet ordered world of human mobility.' - Alison Mountz, Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada

'One of the most comprehensive analysis of a world of migration and mobility, from different regions, angles and disciplines. This book investigates new migration trends and explores how policies aim at disciplining transnational mobility.' - Catherine de Wenden, Sciences-Po, France

'The volume counterbalances research into the politics of migration which takes policy categories for granted, and thereby broadens our understanding of the dynamic and power structure underlying contemporary migration governance.' - Journal of Refugee Studies

"The editors have masterly assembled a remarkable list of contributions by scholars from a wide range of disciplines ... and covering a wide range of topics. The result is outstanding. Every reader will undoubtedly be challenged by the chapters in this new book, and benefit from the continuous fruitful, collaborative efforts of these two editors." - Migration Letters
