Second, it presents, as fully as available data allows, the demographic

Identity is often regarded as something that is possessed by individuals, states, and other agents. In this edited collection, identity is explored across a range of approaches and under-explored case studies with a view to making visible its fractured, contingent, and dynamic features. The book brings together themes of belonging and exclusion, identity formation and fragmentation. It also examines how identity functions in discourse, and the effects it produces, both materially and in ideational terms. Taking in case studies from Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Latin America, the various chapters interrogate identity through formal governing mechanisms, popular culture and place. These studies demonstrate the complex and fluid nature of identity and identity practices, as well as implications for theorising identity.

The limits of the EU’s external dimension of migration in Africa

African governments to engage in regional migration dialogue has been driven by the recognition that prospects for successful regional integration are strongly linked to both intra-­regional and international migration dynamics. As such, ECOWAS has tended to focus on the linkages between migration, development and regional integration (Gnisci, 2008: 106). Although there are some differences in the various emerging agendas on the continent, some common factors characterise the African position on migration. Firstly, the role of EU/European influence in the formulation of

controls, there would be no such thing as international migration. It therefore makes sense that we should seek to understand how states go about making their migration policies – or the walls that states build and the small doors that they open in them (Zolberg 1989). The perception of the various forms of international migration as either positive in terms of economic benefits, or bad in terms of allocation of scarce public goods, is shaped by institutions and organisations in receiving states (Geddes 2003: 2–3). Policies designate various forms of migration as ‘wanted

Setting the context A new era of international migration, and in particular the increasingly global search for asylum, has had profound impacts on the political landscape of the United Kingdom. Chakrabarti’s essay provides an eloquently powerful reminder that those disturbing features of this new landscape, the incarceration and arbitrary detention of asylum seekers, are not just the instruments of faraway, repressive governments: they are increasingly embedded in the fabric of a liberal democratic state like Britain. These instruments form the apex of a
