Globalization, EU Enlargement and the Challenge of Financial Crisis: East-West Migration and the Search for EU Solidarities
2011 (English)In: Security, Insecurity and Migration in Europe / [ed] Gabriela Lazaridis, Farnham: Ashgate Publishing , 2011, 81-99 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Having often been framed in terms of security concerns, migration issues have simultaneously given rise to issues of insecurity: on the one hand, security of borders, political, societal and economic security/insecurity in the host country; one the other, social, legal and economic concerns about human security, with regard to both EU citizens and migrants entering Europe. In terms of state security, migration is a core target of increasingly globally networked surveillance capabilities, whilst with respect to human security, it exposes the gap between the protections that migrants formally enjoy under international law and the realities they experience as they travel and work across different countries. Drawing on the latest research from across the EU, "Security, Insecurity and Migration" explores the concerns of states with regard to migration and the need to protect the fundamental rights of migrants. An interdisciplinary examination of the issues of security and insecurity raised by migration for states, their citizens and migrants themselves, this book will be of interest to scholars of politics, sociology and geography researching migration, race and ethnicity, human and state security and EU politics and policy.
