Contesting Citizenship: Irregular Migrants and New Frontiers by Anne McNevin

By Anne McNevin

Irregular migrants complicate the limits of citizenship and stretch the parameters of political belonging. made from refugees, asylum seekers, "illegal" hard work migrants, and stateless individuals, this workforce of migrants occupies new sovereign areas that generate new subjectivities. Investigating the function of abnormal migrants within the transformation of citizenship, Anne McNevin argues that abnormal prestige is an immanent (rather than aberrant) of worldwide capitalism, shaped through the fast-tracked techniques of globalization.

McNevin casts abnormal migrants as greater than mere sufferers of sovereign energy, shuttled from one situation to the following. Incorporating examples from the USA, Australia, and France, she exhibits how migrants reject their place as "illegal" outsiders and make claims at the groups during which they dwell and paintings. For those migrants, outsider prestige operates as either a style of subjectification and as a domain of lively resistance, forcing observers to reconsider the enactment of citizenship. McNevin connects abnormal migrant activism to the complicated rescaling of the neoliberal kingdom. States more and more prioritize transnational industry family that disrupt the spatial context for citizenship. while, states police their borders in ways in which reinvigorate territorial identities. Mapping the wide dynamics of political belonging in a neoliberal period, McNevin presents valuable perception into the social and spatial transformation of citizenship, sovereignty, and power.
