Migration and especially irregular migration are politically sensitive and highly debated issues in the developed world, particularly in Europe. Some individuals leave their countries because political, social, and economic structures largely fail to provide protection. The citizens of the developed countries, in turn, consider protection-seeking migrants as a source of insecurity and sometimes take draconian measures to prevent it. This book seeks to explore how two groups of individuals can enjoy security together. It develops a new theoretical perspective to study the alternative choices of a political community in relation to irregular protection-seeking immigrants. Drawing on the security dilemma, critical approaches to security, forced migration, trust, cosmopolitanism and hospitality, Bilgic demonstrates how common life between two groups of individuals can be politically constructed, in tandem with limitations, risks, and possible handicaps of initiating such a construction in world politics. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of Migration studies, security studies, international relations, European politics and sociology.
