abstract
"This book traces the street-level practices of migration control and its contestation in the European migration regime. The collaboratively written work brings together the perspectives of state agents, NGOs, and migrants with precarious legal status, collected through multi-sited fieldwork in eight European states: Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and Switzerland. An ethnography of law in action, the book contributes to socio-legal scholarship on migration control at the margins of the state." -- Back cover.
