About the Author

Didier Fassin is the James D. Wolfensohn Professor of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton.

'This volume is the first to bring together two distinct phenomena usually studied in separate strands of research: how migration regimes police the territorial boundaries of states, and how differentiating between and discriminating against minority groups creates social boundaries within states. An important and timely intellectual move' -- Andreas Wimmer, author of 'Ethnic Boundary Making: Institutions, Networks, Power'
'This is a splendid collection of essays that illustrates how racial, gender and class-based discrimination is instrumental to the justification of the state's right to exclude. With case studies from five continents and genuinely interdisciplinary contributions, this volume is an indispensable theoretical and political tool for reflecting on migration and territorial rights in the 21st century' -- Lea Ypi, author of 'Global Justice and Avant-Garde Political Agency'
