Abstract [en]

The paper pursues a critical understanding of the dual signification of ‘precarity’. ‘The authors explorewhat ‘precarity’ as a concept may potentially offer studies of a changing contemporary politicaleconomy of migration. They discuss shifting trends in global migration and the rise of a neoliberal‘regulatory state’, and put the question as to whether we may see tendencies towards convergencebetween ‘South’ and ‘North’, ‘East’ and ‘West’. Based on a review of current research advances theydiscuss, with reference to the classical work of Karl Polanyi, potentials for a contemporary‘countermovement’ contesting precarity among migrants. Bringing forth controversies and dilemmasin need of analysis, theoretical elaboration and empirical inquiry the authors ask ‘what is the space forcivil society in governance on migration?
