UCL Seminar: Everyday bordering as a new citizenship duty
Mon 8 May 2017, 16:00 – 17:30 BST
This lecture is part of the Citizenship, Social Imagination and Collective Action research seminar series, convened by Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou, UCL Institute of Education.
Nira Yuval-Davis, Director of the Research Centre on Migration, Refugees and Belonging (CMRB) at the University of East London.
In this paper I discuss the construction of unpaid/untrained borderguarding as a new everyday citizenship duty. This construction has been part of the more systemic crisis of governability under neo-liberal globalisation as well as an attempt to respond to growing autochthonic populist political projects of belonging. The illustrative examples in this paper are taken for the EU funded EUBorderscapes project and our fieldwork in London during the implementation of recent UK Immigration Acts.
The Citizenship, Social Imagination and Collective Action research seminar series is run from the Department of Social Science at the UCL Institute of Education. Series convenor Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou is Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Social Theory & Social Policy. All are welcome to attend the seminars free of charge.
