Temporal Apartheid as the Italian Response to Global Migration

  • Stefania Tusini
Chapter
Part of the Europe in a Global Context book series (EGC)

Abstract

The migratory phenomenon reveals the contradictions of globalization and belies the rhetoric of open borders. Despite the economically strongest countries spending huge sums to restrict immigration, more and more migrants reach the destination countries. Many western societies (such as Italy) give discriminatory responses to this global phenomenon and place migrants in a peculiar spatio-temporal collocation that I call “temporal apartheid” (Tusini 2015).
