9780230247345: Globalization and Borders: Death at the Global Frontier

Controlling border crossing has become an urgent concern under conditions of globalization, leading Western governments to introduce increasingly coercive control measures. Far from eradicating spontaneous border crossing, this defensive geography has fuelled illicit people-smuggling markets, and forced asylum seekers and illegalized travellers into increasingly hazardous journeys. Drawing on data from official sources, media reports and lists of deaths collated by non-governmental organizations in Europe, Australia and North America, this book draws direct parallels between the border control policies adopted across the Global North, and a mounting death toll of illegalized border crossers. It analyses the political and material conditions driving contemporary border control policies and discusses the processes that mediate popular and official understandings of border-related fatalities. In seeking to account for, rather than merely count, border-related deaths the book is intended to shift the debate about contemporary border controls towards the acceptance of a more mobility-tolerant future.

Recensione:

'Weber and Pickering's book unravels a striking and largely under-researched facet of immigration as a growing global phenomenon [...] It is a well-documented research about the most pernicious consequences of border controls. By meticulously linking these tragedies to border measures, Pickering and Weber have presented a powerful insight that runs contrary to the dominant public discourse on 'border protection' in Western countries. It is a necessary read for both academics and policy makers' The British Journal of Criminology
 
'Globalization and Borders is a comprehensive and insightful study of the deadly nature of border policing activities carried out in Europe and the US. As such, it provides a crucial resource for understanding the fate that awaits asylum seekers deterred from attempting to reach Australia.'
Current Issues in Criminal Justice

'Migration and borders are deeply contested and political issues. Pickering and Weber are two of the most passionate and well informed academic voices in the debate. Drawing from a remarkable range of sources and brilliantly written, their 'border autopsy' is a must-read for any policy maker, student and academic with interest in migration.
In fact, it should be read by anyone. The extraordinary human tragedies unfolding at the Western borders, which are masterfully documented and analysed in this book, should not be left to the especially interested.' - Katja Franko Aas, Professor of Criminology, University of Oslo, Norway


'The authors are two of the foremost researchers in the criminology of migration control - a specialist area that they have done much to create and set the agenda for. This book promises to become a standard work on this topic which will provide new and important insights.' - Ben Bowling, Professor of Criminology & Criminal Justice and Director of Criminological Studies in the School of Law, King's College, London, UK

'So much of our work here at the Institute is about collecting information on deaths - racist murders, deaths in police custody, in prisons, deaths at the border, deaths in detention centres, asylum seekers who give up hope, hang themselves, jump off balconies. So this book makes me think why do we do it? … It's as though, those of us who have been in the business of counting and accounting have without our knowing it provided a counter-balance to the processes of neutralisation, dehumanisation and distanciation that this book describes.' -Liz Fekete, Institute of Race Relations London, UK

'Deaths at the migratory fault lines where rich and poor nations intersect are an almost taken-for-granted reality of our increasingly unequal times. Powerful nations 'illegalize' desperate migrants and subject them to ever more arduous journeys to prevent entry, but they prefer to keep the consequences of these actions out of public view. This thoughtful book, written in the style of an inquest, lays bare the violence that underlies contemporary border control and provides groundwork for a much-needed reconceptualization of national responsibilities.' - Doris Marie Provine, Professor of Justice Studies, Arizona State University, USA
 
'...a well-documented research about the most pernicious consequences of border controls. By meticulously linking these tragedies to border measures, Pickering and Weber have presented a powerful insight that runs contrary to the dominant public discourse on 'border protection' in Western countries. It is a necessary read for both academics and policy makers.' - Ana Aliverti, Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford, British Journal of Criminology
