This book is an untimely if urgent invitation to think about migration as an ethical and political subject through the paradoxes of hospitality/hostility. With a persistent focus on spaces where such paradoxes are played out – ranging from mosques, camps, cities, borders, hotels, homes, and states – it provides a challenging perspective on sovereignty as spatial practice across frontiers.
Migration, Ethics and Space investigates the interaction of ethics and power in a range of spaces of hospitality that operate at and beyond the margins of the international state system. It astutely reveals that when people seek to cross borders or create spaces of their own, migration develops and hospitality is accessed, presumed, appropriated, or rebuffed.
This book provides a provocative discussion of hospitality as a key but often overlooked topic structuring the field of International Relations. From the refugee camp to the global city, this exploration provides a timely look into how various spaces are produced in relation to hospitality and the power relations within that both enable and limit its practice.
Dan Bully’s SPACES OF HOSPITALITY is a highly original contribution to the ethics and politics of international hospitality. It is philosophically astute, conceptually innovative and is distinguished by the depth of its political and ethical attunement.
We live in an age of humanitarianism, a time when the highest form of politics and the noblest form of citizenship is to help others. This book places this new pastoralism in a different light. What if all this saving, sheltering and caring is not a new softness tempering the harsh edges of power but increasingly one of power's most privileged mechanisms? Richly contextualized, incisive and provocative, this book will change the way we understand hospitality. To the history of social struggle it adds a new antagonism: host/guest, truly a dialectic for our time.
Bulley’s Migration, Ethics, and Space is a timely reminder that beyond the oft-discussed statist politics of the refugee crisis there is an ethical response to the refugee crisis that is already unfolding within, and beyond, states. That hospitality is productive of specific subjectivities and spaces, from which more hopeful and humane relations might form. This is the right book for the right moment.
Dan Bulley explores how hospitality could be best managed for different types of migrations, examining the various reasons driving these decisions, and exploring the perspectives of countries and international organizations to help build an ethical structure of hospitality. He clearly explains why people move from one place to another; and the book helps structure an international ethics conception, and explicates the measures to be taken in this context. It is a valuable resource for students, researchers and those interested in contributing to the field with new studies.
