Migration Infrastructure in Asia and the Middle East (22-23 août 2013)

mardi 26 mars 2013

Atelier organisé à Singapour par l’Asia Research Institute

Appel à communication

Extrait de la présentation en ligne :

« This workshop takes the concept of migration infrastructure as a starting point for conceptualizing new regimes of transnational migration across Asia and the Middle East. These regimes are characterized by growing demands for documentation (i.e. the production of passports and no objection certificates) and stringent immigration controls, as the role of state actors in the migration process has become more extensive. At the same time, the development of flexible labor markets characterized by sub-contracting and the privatization of migration management means that intersections between state and market actors are increasingly complex on local, national, and transnational scales. In this context, a wide range of institutionalized services and facilities-such as medical checkups, surveillance systems, temporary housing, migrant training, transportation, terminals, as well as the production of documents-form the basis for contemporary flows of migration. »
