How are pathways to asylum shaped by neoliberal capitalism? And how are people resisting profit-making structures within the asylum industry?
The book brings together writing, photography, art & infographics contributed by academics, activists, artists & people impacted by asylum regimes. It is intended to challenge readers to move beyond questions of legal, moral, and humanitarian obligations that dominate popular debates regarding asylum seekers.
Digging deeper, the contributors focus on processes and actors often overlooked in mainstream analyses and on the trends increasingly rendering asylum available only to people with financial and cultural capital.
In highlighting protest as well as profit, Asylum for Sale “strikes a crucial balance of critical analyses and proposed solutions for resisting and reshaping current and emerging immigration norms”.
