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

Lessons for critical security studies?

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

Security/ Mobility and politics of movement

about organized crime, global terrorism, undocumented migration and other dangerous 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 knowledgeable and controllable

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 equally invested

Redefining security in the Middle East

, neo-colonialism, 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

Israel and a Palestinian state

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 migration and inter
