Deepening Divides

How Physical Borders and Social Boundaries Delineate our World

Didier Fassin (Redaktør)

«'This is a splendid collection of essays that illustrates how racial, gender and class-based discrimination is instrumental to the justification of the state's right to exclude. With case studies from five continents and genuinely interdisciplinary contributions, this volume is an indispensable theoretical and political tool for reflecting on migration and territorial rights in the 21st century'»

At a glance, 'borders' and 'boundaries' may seem synonymous. But in the real (geopolitical) world, they coexist as distinct, albeit overlapping entities: the former a state's delimitation of territory; the latter the social delineation of differences. Les mer

At a glance, 'borders' and 'boundaries' may seem synonymous. But in the real (geopolitical) world, they coexist as distinct, albeit overlapping entities: the former a state's delimitation of territory; the latter the social delineation of differences.



The refugee crisis in Europe showed how racial and ethnic boundaries are often instrumentalised to justify the strengthening of state borders - regardless of the cost in human life. But there are other, less tragic, examples that illustrate this overlapping as well, and ultimately demonstrate that the oft-differentiated spheres of borders and boundaries are best understood through their relationship to one another.



Deepening Divides explores this relationship from many distinct perspectives and national contexts, with case studies covering five continents and drawing on anthropology, gender studies, law, political science and sociology for a truly interdisciplinary collection.

«'This volume is the first to bring together two distinct phenomena usually studied in separate strands of research: how migration regimes police the territorial boundaries of states, and how differentiating between and discriminating against minority groups creates social boundaries within states. An important and timely intellectual move'»
