Name, affiliation, contact details, and short bio of Guest Editor s 3. To pursue the claim that we need to rethink the accounts of political community that anyone with credibility as a political analyst would much prefer to leave as a constitutive assumption of almost everything they want to say, takes some courage. Isin, Peter Nyers, Bryan S. Guest Editor s will work with a member of the Editorial Team to assemble a Special Issue that meets the highest scholarly standards. He is the author of Irregular Citizenship, Immigration, and Deportation Routledge 2019. Drawing on Foucauldian analytics, the analysis demonstrates how key strategies employed to govern refugees, namely spatial confinement and development interventions are also creatively subverted by refugees and appropriated as bases for resistance and political mobilization.

In saying this, social geographers have more recently sought to examine the influence of structural and environmental agents on human mobility -particularly in these 'state of exception' situations see Nyers, 2006. Also being challenged and recognized is that private persecution, mainly against women in a state that supports patriarchal values, must, as feminists insist, be recognized as persecution that gives women that right to claim asylum. Sassen argues that postnational citizenship is more broad-based than the concept of denationalised citizenship, as state remains the point of interest, and citizenry rights evolve outside the state, while in denationalised citizenship rights remain within the domains of the state. How and to what extent are refugees able to carve out political space where they can engage with and affect their lives and their situations? Evasive Manoeuvres: Refugee Warrior Communities Recast the Political Conclusion. The British Council translation Web site refers us to the collaboration between Martin Bowman, born in Montreal of Scottish parents, and Wajdi Mouawad, a theater director born in Beirut and brought up in Montreal, in which they arrived at a particular orthography and transposed demotic to capture the language of Welsh's Scots speakers in Joual. This article puzzles out the relationships between displaced peoples, their families, resettlement, the household, employment, and social reproduction ÔÇö the often voluntary, feminized, and un- or under-compensated labour that reproduces a family, household, or labour force.

The future of the transatlantic relationship is rarely out of the headlines in Europe or North America. International refugees theoretically can invoke their universal human rights to gain asylum from the oppressive or restrictive behavior of sovereign states. Based on this assumption, the paper investigates the role of managing temporality of Marka camp in crafting distinctive urbanisms that have existed for decades, yet, occasionally visited in literature. Being governed by fragmented authority, uncertain sovereignty and undetermined duration McConnell 2009;Wilson 2012 , Palestinian situation challenges the conventional understanding of both refugees and camps Ramadan 2013.

It is concluded that rights are instruments that facilitate political and social intervention and that the context in which rights are invoked is crucial to their potential effect. In Jordan, Palestine refugee camps have turned by time into socioeconomic centers of gravity and cores of urban and regional expansions. As long as we filter protection through the concept of sovereignty, we are doomed to devote attention not to protection but to the many practices that limits access to protection. Two Special Issues will be published in a 2016 issue of the journal. In classical conceptions of security, derived from a realist paradigm of international relations, the relevant agent about whose security one should be concerned was the sovereign state, and insecurity sprang from the anarchical order in which sovereign states subsisted.

Findings suggest that photographs address polemics specific to the European refugee crisis. One phenomenon which has brought these two discourses into conflict is that of people-smuggling, which some see as a non-traditional security threat, but which arguably enhances the human security of those in need whom it assists. While humanitarianism is often portrayed as posing a challenge to the codes and practices of state sovereignty, this article argues that framing the refugee phenomenon as a 'humanitarian emergency' works to sustain constitutive practices which stabilise and reproduce statist resolutions to questions of political identity, community, and world order. We compared these results with recommended emergency phase minimum indicators. Normally, Special Issues consist of seven articles as well as an article length Introduction.

Notes from the Field, Canadian Association for Refugee and Forced Migration Studies November 2018. To claim that protection and assistance need to be kept separate does not imply that assistance is something irrelevant but simply highlights the different rationales of each concept. The crisis discourse that is commonly mobilised to describe refugees and their movements testify to this suspension and to the location of the figure of the refugee in a space of exception. This humanitarian aid can be seen as violent if it is seen as legitimizing and supporting violent regimes and appearing to maybe seemingly cynical observers that so-called humanitarianism is just another hierarchical business opportunity. The earthquakes that struck Christchurch, New Zealand, in 2010ÔÇö11 ruptured both the material and sociocultural architectures of the city. The contributions are intended to provide active, pointed, and practical recommendations that would eventually lead to an immigration programme that is efficient, secure, and complies with international human rights standards while eliminating instances of abuse and exploitation.

If however such claims are met by relativization of the content of protected rights in line with practices prevailing in different states the asylum system is undermined and individual protection diminished.
