 Borders, (labour) mobility and migration industry or
what is at stake in regulating bodies in motion

by Rutvica Andrijasevic
University of Bristol

This talk will suggest that migration, and in particular the tension surrounding the mobility of labour, is a strategic field where to observe the reorganisation of capitalism and the intensification of the logic of the market. I will examine the changes in the contemporary division of labour, the conflicts between labour and capital, and the ongoing commercialisation of migration control so as to outline the ways in which migration is a driving force in the on-going transformations of Europe’s labour markets and citizenship.

Rutvica Andrijasevic works at the University of Bristol. She is the author of Agency, Migration and Citizenship in Sex Trafficking and has published widely on the impact of migration on labour relations and citizenship in Europe. Her most recent project investigates the raise of China and its impact on work and employment relations in Europe. Rutvica is a member of the editorial collective Feminist Review and an editorial board member of the Anti-Trafficking Review.
