About this book

Introduction

State borders regulate cross-border mobility and determine peoples' chances to travel, work, and study across the globe. This book looks at how global mobility is defined by borders in 2011 in comparison to the 1970s. The authors trace the transformation of OECD-state borders in recent decades and show how borders have become ever more selective.

Reviews

“The book, published in 2012, is well-researched and competently written. It delineates a much more nuanced picture of cross-border migrations and related state policies than mainstream media and political rhetoric usually allow for. … it should appeal to the cool-minded academic wishing to grasp the mechanisms for inclusion and exclusion that inter-state borders still represent and implement, especially in the so-called developed countries of our planet.” (Giorgio Baruchello, The European Legacy, Vol. 22 (3), 2017)
