The five interlinked essays in this issue of Continuum consider questions of the (re)production of borders - biopolitical, spatial, legal, historical, symbolic - intended to contain and exclude asylum seekers. The essays situate these modalities and technologies of exclusion in the context of broader questions of nationalism, citizenship, biopolitics, neoliberalism and the transnational genealogies of colonialism and racism. They make the collective argument that the issue of border security is not the preoccupation of a single political party or government but serves to magnetize a cluster of concerns and issues that are central to contemporary formations of citizenship, identity, territoriality and statehood in the West.
