Paradoxes of Belonging: Migration, Exclusion and Trans-national Rights in the Mediterranean

Tzanelli, R and Yar, M (2009) Paradoxes of Belonging: Migration, Exclusion and Trans-national Rights in the Mediterranean. Development, 52 (4). 473 - 478 . ISSN 1011-6370


Rodanthi Tzanelli and Majid Yar examine Mediterranean and wider European policies on migration in light of their exclusionary and discriminatory tendencies. The current rhetoric and exclusionary practices are cementing of profoundly differentiated rights to live, work and belong. They argue that the outsider status of migrants from the global East and South is reproduced in Europe through a range of patriarchal, racialized and nationalist cultural discourses that strip away rights and consign migrants to political, social and economic marginality.
