Challenging the Political Across Borders: Migrants’ and Solidarity Struggles

Abstract

While recent years have seen the reassertion of exclusionary, anti-migrant politics and discourses, migrant-led and solidarity struggles contesting migration and border regimes have also risen and gained in visibility. How new are those struggles? What do they mean for our understanding and practice of politics and the political? What possibilities for change do they open up, and what limitations may they face? Based on chapters by a range of academics and activists engaged in border and migration struggles, Challenging the Political Across Borders: Migrants’ and Solidarity Struggles examines the practices, structures, and meanings of solidarity with and by migrants and refugees in Europe and beyond. Bringing together empirical, conceptual and historical insights, the volume interrogates struggles unfolding on the ground and situates them within a critical analysis of historical and current mobility regimes, and how these have been resisted. This collection will be of interest to students and academics working on migration and social struggles, as well as to activists, volunteers and those interested in new forms of solidarity.
