As record numbers of forced migrants are driven from their homes and encounter ever more restrictive border enforcement regimes, understanding the complex experiences of people on the move becomes increasingly important. While some forced migrants successfully negotiate the hurdles of seeking asylum, far more are left unprotected by international law. My ethnographic research asks:
- What are the experiences of the increasing numbers of forced migrants who fall outside the protections of asylum law?
- How do their experiences illuminate changing dimensions of border enforcement, mobility, and sovereignty?
