By Anne McNevin

Irregular migrants complicate the limits of citizenship and stretch the parameters of political belonging. made out of refugees, asylum seekers, "illegal" exertions migrants, and stateless individuals, this staff of migrants occupies new sovereign areas that generate new subjectivities. Investigating the position of abnormal migrants within the transformation of citizenship, Anne McNevin argues that abnormal prestige is an immanent (rather than aberrant) of worldwide capitalism, shaped by way of the fast-tracked techniques of globalization.

McNevin casts abnormal migrants as greater than mere sufferers of sovereign strength, shuttled from one position to the following. Incorporating examples from the USA, Australia, and France, she indicates how migrants reject their place as "illegal" outsiders and make claims at the groups within which they stay and paintings. For those migrants, outsider prestige operates as either a method of subjectification and as a domain of lively resistance, forcing observers to reconsider the enactment of citizenship. McNevin connects abnormal migrant activism to the complicated rescaling of the neoliberal kingdom. States more and more prioritize transnational industry family members that disrupt the spatial context for citizenship. whilst, states police their borders in ways in which reinvigorate territorial identities. Mapping the extensive dynamics of political belonging in a neoliberal period, McNevin presents precious perception into the social and spatial transformation of citizenship, sovereignty, and power.
