Description

Everyday bordering, autochthonic politics and the double crisis of governability and governmentality

In this lecture Professor Nira Yuval-Davis examines the systemic crises of neo-liberal globalisation: the governability of ‘nation-states’ and the governmentality of their citizens. She explores the rising popularity of autochthonic populist politics as a response to these crises, and everyday bordering as a policy response to both the crises and rising populism. Professor Yuval-Davis uses the changing politics and policies in the UK that resulted with Brexit to illustrate these developments.
