'The Making of Migration': A Roundtable
Room S0.17, Social Sciences Building

Warwick PAIS and Philosophy have organised a roundtable to discuss Martina Tazzioli's new book, The Making of Migration: The Biopolitics of Mobility at Europe's Borders (London: SAGE, 2019). The book addresses the rapid phenomenon that has become one of the most contentious issues in contemporary life: How are migrants governed as individual subjects and as part of groups? What are the modes of control, identification and partitions that migrants are subjected to? Bringing together an ethnographically grounded analysis of migration, and a critical theoretical engagement with the security and humanitarian modes of governing migrants, The Making of Migration pushes us to rethink notions that are central in current political theory such as multiplicity and subjectivity. This is an innovative and sophisticated study, deploying migration as an analytical angle for complicating and reconceptualising the emergence of collective subjects, mechanisms of individualisation, and political invisibility/visibility.
