Subverting neoliberal citizenship. Migrant struggles for the right to stay in contemporary Italy

  • Federico Oliveri University of Pisa

Abstract

Present times are not only times of proliferation of borders, aimed at controlling the mobility of subaltern people. They are also times of struggles against those borders, recognized as a key mechanism of the dominant citizenship regime in the global North. Those struggles are enacted autonomously by migrants who claim the right to have rights, in particular the rights to free movement, to stay in the countries of arrival, to decent work and welfare, to cultural freedom, to belong and participate to the political community.
