Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Scholars point to an ongoing process of securitization of migration in Europe which is not least reflected in state practices of policing and extraterritorialization of migration and asylum. These policies are accompanied and legitimized by public discourses which draw attention to the alleged security risks emanating from migrants and asylum seekers such as radicalization, terrorism and misogyny.
The discursive reinterpretation and institutional reorganization of migration as a matter of “national security and public order” are highly gendered processes that often construct male migrants as “violent oppressors”, female migrants as “passive victims” and the majority society as “equal, emancipated and democratic”. This results in a number of disciplinary and punitive measures (e.g. compulsory “value courses”, cuts in social benefits in the event of “unwillingness to integrate”) that serve to ethnicize migrant communities by constructing them as “culturally different” and reproduce gender and class inequalities. At the same time, this negative attitude towards migration is relativized and sometimes even promoted to increase the integration of migrant women in care work in Western European societies.
The aim of this seminar is to work out and understand these intensifying and contradicting processes of reinterpretation and reorganization of migration and asylum from a gender-theoretical and intersectional perspective.
