We are situated, historically and geopolitically, in a post-colonial, post-national and post-fordist Europe, where migration – as a constitutive feature of the European social space – highlights Europe’s ideological and constitutional limitations and challenges. The intensification of institutional restrictions and closures, as well as continuous policy gaps, reveal inability to encompass and accommodate migration at nation-state level; migrants’ claims to rights de facto challenge national sovereignty as the ideological/political foundation of citizenship rights. While migrants performatively engender the right to mobility and precarity, official policies are increasingly including selected categories of migrants as precarious workers denying them at the same time social rights and political participation. Post-national inclusion effectuated fro example through ad hoc regularizations, becomes equally – if not more problematic than exclusion.
