Gefangen in der Mobilität. Prekäre Zonierungsprozesse an den Rändern Europas

Sabine Hess


Against the background of the research project TRANSIT MIGRATION (2002–2004) on migration regimes in Turkey, Greece and the Balkan region the article will discuss new processes of zoning and fragmentation of citizenship rights at the fringes of Europe. By analyzing diverse practices of "transit migration" the article can show how the new Europeanised border regime does not totally stop migration. The text rather demonstrates how the deterritorialised and stretched border regime produces, in its course of struggling with migrants’ subjectivities and projects, something like "precarious transit zones".
