Jenseits von Autonomie und Kontrolle
Migration als eigensinnige Praxis
Schlagworte:Autonomie, Migration, Migrationspolitik, Globalisierung, Feminismus
The dominant view of political scientists on the increase of irregular migration is to diagnose the failure of migration control. Anti-racist theorists also question the nation state’s capability of controlling its borders, but they stress the productive power of the migrants (“autonomy of miration”). This contribution argues against simplifications: while the first concept focuses on state policies only, the second one tends to praise a masculinized autonomous subject. The authors argue for a more differentiated concept of the Eigensinn of migration.
