About this book

Since 9/11 Western states have sought to integrate 'securitisation' measures within migration regimes as asylum seekers and other migrant categories come to be seen as agents of social instability or as potential terrorists. Treating migration as a security threat has therefore increased insecurity amongst migrant and ethnic minority populations.

Reviews

“Gabriella Lazardis and Khursheed Wadia, in their edited collection on The Securitisation of Migration in the EU, critically examine the securitization of immigration measures adopted by European states post-9/11, and how treating migration as a security threat has increased insecurity among immigrant ethnic minorities and long-settled Muslim communities. … a significant contribution to increasing understanding of how a multiple, overlapping set of institutions that includes the media, academia and politicians (mis)represent Muslims.” (Sadek Hamid, Patterns of Prejudice, Vol. 51 (2), March, 2017)


'This is an ambitious, nuanced and challenging overview of the ways in which migration to the EU has become the subject of policy discourses focused on security and the policing of borders. It addresses questions that are at the heart of contemporary politics across Europe and the essays in this collection are a striking reminder that critical scholarship has an important role to play in challenging received wisdoms.' John Solomos, Professor of Sociology, University of Warwick, UK
