In this comparative study of the contemporary politics of deportation in Germany and the United States, Antje Ellermann analyzes the capacity of the liberal democratic state to control individuals within its borders. The book grapples with the question of why, in the 1990s, Germany responded to vociferous public demands for stricter immigration control by passing and implementing far-reaching policy reforms, while the United States failed to effectively respond to a comparable public mandate. Drawing on extensive field interviews, Ellermann finds that these crossnational differences reflect institutionally determined variations in socially coercive state capacity. By tracing the politics of deportation across the evolution of the policy cycle, beginning with anti-immigrant populist backlash and ending in the expulsion of migrants by deportation bureaucrats, Ellermann is also able to show that the conditions underlying state capacity systematically vary across policy stages. Whereas the ability to make socially coercive law is contingent on strong institutional linkages between the public and legislators, the capacity for implementation depends on the political insulation of bureaucrats.

English summary: Jurgen Bast provides a fresh reading of current immigration law in Germany. His study on the legal framework for the control of migration for employment, on family grounds, or for protection purposes, departs from traditional patterns of police law in favour of a more modern understanding of regulating migration processes by means of law. German description: Jurgen Bast schlagt vor, das uberkommene Auslander- und Asylrecht als ein modernes, sozialgestaltendes Migrationsrecht zu verstehen, dessen Zentrum die ordnungsrechtliche Steuerung der Zuwanderung bildet: das Aufenthaltsrecht. Seine Analyse nutzt rechtsgeschichtliche, politikwissenschaftliche und soziologische Erkenntnisse, um funf konkurrierende Perspektiven auf das Migrationsgeschehen zu identifizieren, die im Recht aufeinandertreffen. Auf dieser Grundlage entfaltet er die volker- und verfassungsrechtliche Rahmenordnung fur deutsche und europaische Gesetzgebung und zeigt Ordnungsmuster der verwaltungsrechtlichen Steuerung der Arbeits-, Familien- und Fluchtmigration auf. Als Entscheidung von grosser Tragweite erweist sich, dass das geltende Aufenthaltsgesetz allen Zuwanderern Passagen zur Einwanderung eroffnet, indem es ein Daueraufenthaltsrecht in Aussicht stellt.

Die rechtliche Stellung von Menschen, die keine Aufenthaltspapiere haben und einer Erwerbsarbeit nachgehen, ist prekär. Seit 2011 stellt § 98a AufenthG nun ausdrücklich fest, dass auch diese Menschen einen Anspruch auf Vergütung für ihre Arbeit haben, den sie vor einem deutschen Gericht einklagen können. Der vorliegende Band untersucht, wie weit dieses Recht reicht, ob und wie weit darüber hinaus Schutzrechte gelten und was zu tun ist, um die Rechtssituation zu verbessern. Unter Einbindung soziologischer Erkenntnisse und unter Berücksichtigung von Genderaspekten werden zudem Handlungsstrategien für Betroffene und politische Akteure einschließlich Gewerkschaften aufgezeigt.

This book traces the practices of migration control and its contestation in the European migration regime in times of intense politicization. The collaboratively written work brings together the perspectives of state agents, NGOs, migrants with precarious legal status, and their support networks, collected through multi-sited fieldwork in eight European states: Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and Switzerland. The book provides knowledge of how European migration law is implemented, used, and challenged by different actors, and of how it lends and constrains power over migrants’ journeys and prospects. An ethnography of law in action, the book contributes to socio-legal scholarship on migration control at the margins of the state.

Politische Philosophie der Einwanderung

Das Thema Einwanderung wirft gewichtige gesellschaftspolitische, moralische und ethische Fragen auf, die seit einiger Zeit im Zentrum intensiver Debatten stehen. Der renommierte britische Philosoph David Miller verteidigt in seinem Buch eine Position zwischen einem starken Kosmopolitismus, der für uneingeschränkte Bewegungsfreiheit und offene Grenzen plädiert, und einem blinden Nationalismus, der oft in pauschale Ausländerfeindlichkeit und dumpfen Rassismus umschlägt. In ständiger Auseinandersetzung mit Gegenargumenten entwickelt er seinen Standpunkt, der die Rechte sowohl der Immigranten als auch der Staatsbürger berücksichtigen soll – und einen schwachen Kosmopolitismus ebenso einschließt wie das Recht von Nationalstaaten, ihre Grenzen zu kontrollieren. Ziel von Millers Ausführungen ist eine Immigrationspolitik liberaler Demokratien, die so gerecht ist wie möglich und so realistisch wie nötig. Ein beeindruckend präzise und nüchtern argumentierendes Buch, das zum Nachdenken anregt und zum Widerspruch reizt.

Since the 1960s, overseas migration had become a major factor in the economy of the Philippines. It has also profoundly influenced the sense of nationhood of both migrants and nonmigrants. Migrant workers learned to view their home country as part of a plural world of nations, and they shaped a new sort of Filipino identity while appropriating the modernity of the outside world, where at least for a while they operated as insiders. The global nomadism of Filipino workers brought about some fundamental reorientations. It revolutionized Philippine society, reignited a sense of nationhood, imposed new demands on the state, reconfigured the class structure, and transnationalized class and other social relations, even as it deterritorialized the state and impacted the destinations of migrant workers. Philippine foreign policy now takes surprising turns in consideration of migrant workers and Filipinos living abroad. Many tertiary education institutions aim deliberately at the overseas employability of local graduates. And the "Fil-foreign" offspring of unions with partners from other nationalities add a new inflection to Filipino identity.

Migrants Against Slavery

Virginians and the Nation

Author: Philip J. Schwarz

Publisher: University of Virginia Press

ISBN: 9780813920085

Category: History

Page: 250

A significant number of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Virginians migrated north and west with the intent of extricating themselves from a slave society. All sought some kind of freedom: whites who left the Old Dominion to escape from slavery refused to live any longer as slave owners or as participants in a society grounded in bondage; fugitive slaves attempted to liberate themselves; free African Americans searched for greater opportunity. In Migrants against Slavery Philip J. Schwarz suggests that antislavery migrant Virginians, both the famous--such as fugitive Anthony Burns and abolitionist Edward Coles--and the lesser known, deserve closer scrutiny. Their migration and its aftermath, he argues, intensified the national controversy over human bondage, playing a larger role than previous historians have realized in shaping American identity and in Americans' effort to define the meaning of freedom.

Routledge Handbook of Transnational Criminal Law

Certain types of crime are increasingly being perpetrated across national borders and require a unified regional or global response to combat them. Transnational criminal law covers both the international treaty obligations which require States to introduce specific substantive measures into their domestic criminal law schemes, and an allied procedural dimension concerned with the articulation of inter-state cooperation in pursuit of the alleged transnational criminal. The Routledge Handbook of Transnational Criminal Law provides a comprehensive overview of the system which is designed to regulate cross border crime. The book looks at the history and development of the system, asking questions as to the principal purpose and effectiveness of transnational criminal law as it currently stands. The book brings together experts in the field, both scholars and practitioners, in order to offer original and forward-looking analyses of the key elements of the transnational criminal law. The book is split into several parts for ease of reference: Fundamental concepts surrounding the international regulation of transnational crime. Procedures for international cooperation against alleged transnational criminals including jurisdiction, police cooperation, asset recovery and extradition. Substantive crimes covered by transnational criminal law analysing the current legal provisions for each crime. The implementation of transnational criminal law and the effectiveness of the system of transnational criminal law. With chapters from over 25 authorities in the field, this handbook will be an invaluable reference work for student and academics and for policy makers with an interest in transnational criminal law.
