Sinopsis

XXI Century’s irregular migrations have been framed as national security issues, receiving as such, millionaire investments to surveil and punish. Consequently terrifying elements such as the State’s security forces, and the extortionist crime have occupied the borders. Under this punitive principle, borders fulfill a critical mission: not letting pass those considered “undesirables”, who do not possess visas o entry permits for the destination countries, or for passing through the transit ones. Under these circumstances, borders prevent and inhibit but never stop the human flow filtering through the borders’ pores, as if it was a ghost following capital looking for a chance to be exploited. In its current metamorphosis, the capital despises and degrades the labor force, selecting and extracting its energy, which once used, is discarded and replaced in an intermittent cycle. The works included in this volume unveil these cycles, questioning and reflecting on the free circulation of people, the nature of border controls, the routes followed by migrants to avoid regulations, and the geopolitical expressions between migrants’ countries of origin and destination.
