Public presence, discourse, and migrants as threat
Greece as a
major problem for the nation. The material I examine in this chapter
focuses mostly on the conservative and centre-left newspapers that
represent the core of the mainstream press in Greece.
The Law School crisis resonated with the general problem
of illegal migration in Greece. By representing the public presence of
migrants in the Law School of Athens as a serious problem, the press
of this, I take a step back and
reflect more broadly on the intersections, actual and potential, between
the literatures on mobilities and critical security studies.
The ‘new mobilities paradigm’ emerged across
different disciplines from sociology to geography, anthropology to
business studies, migration and tourism to urban studies. 1 Mobility may be undoubtedly
fashionable but evaluating its

mobilities’ (Walters 2006 : 199) that render
movement a central political concern.
While contemporary liberal politics actively encourages and
enables mobility for the sake of our modern lifestyle and the economic
benefits that it yields, it also seeks to render the flows of such mobility

Ontological coordination and the assessment of consistency in asylum requests
the use of consistency as a
decision criterion, let me move the narrative back to my field trip.
After leaving São Paulo, I arranged meetings at Cáritas’s sister
agency in Brasília, the Human Rights and Migration Institute (IMDH in
Portuguese). My suspicion of checklist overviews was strengthened by the
stories I heard there. Whenever examiners mentioned strong and weak
claims, I made a point of
Surveillance and transgender bodies in a post-9/ 11 era of neoliberalism
In these contours of citizenship, belonging,
and migration, how do … borders themselves deterritorialize and
reterritorialize us? Certainly, the borders of gender have a lot
in common with those of home: both police ‘spaces where
those who do not ‘belong’ are separated from those
who do.’ [Aizura] Bathrooms and border crossings are both
migration and refugees, economic scarcity, ethnic and racial conflict,
domestic abuse/violence against women, and political and human rights.
These issues both exceed and render problematic the limited boundaries
of the field as they take place across and beyond state boundaries and
cannot be resolved by any particular state structure on its own.
Second, and perhaps more importantly
also needs four other types of capability:
political legitimacy; ethnic and religious tolerance; economic
capabilities; and available essential natural resources.
Why not include other variables discussed in the liberal
literature, such as population growth rates, population migrations,
environmental hazards, or even diffusion of knowledge and technology ( Holsti, 1995 : 43)?
Certainly these variables

Water scarcity, the 1980s’ Palestinian uprising and implications for peace
scarcity. However, this variable needs to be better understood
because of its increasing importance in the chain that often ends in
violence (1991). Homer-Dixon’s more recent research on
environmental scarcity and acute conflict focuses on fresh water
scarcity in addition to other renewable resources such as fire-wood and
fish stock (1999; 1996a; 1994). Environmental scarcity increases
