Title: The EU's 'refugee crisis' and the production of 'illegality'
Abstract: The paper will explore the nexus between policy responses to the so-called 'refugee crisis' in the EU and the production of illegalized subjects. It addresses the 'crisis' as agonistic terrain where competing political agendas are articulated and highlights how they impact on boat migrants who crossed the Mediterranean irregularly to reach the EU's southern shores
