About this book


This book aims to decipher the complex web of structural, institutional and cultural contradictions which shape the inclusion-exclusion dialectic and the multifaceted grid within which the 'us' becomes the 'other' and the 'other' becomes the 'us'. It looks at how international migrants in Europe transform from legal subjects into legal abjects.
