Border Nation: A Story of Migration

Border Nation: A Story of Migration (Paperback)

£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Borders are not just meaningless geographical lines. They have an impact on all of our lives, whether it's the fallout from Brexit or the inhumanity of a detention center. In Border Nation, Leah Cowan shows how borders are violent, oppressive, and must be resisted.







Looking back, we learn of the elitist, colonial and patriarchal origins of borders, explore the vital history of anti-racist, anti-border organizing and hear stories from people who have crossed partitions. Debunking myths around migration, Leah Cowan unpacks the 'hostile environment' and reveals how healthcare crises, terrorism, unemployment and housing shortages are often manipulated by politicians and the media to vilify migrants.







As borders grow, migrants are policed and immigration controls are tightened, this book transforms our understanding of borders, migration and our fight for belonging.

Leah Cowan is the Politics Editor at gal-dem. She works at Imkaan, a Black feminist organization dedicated to addressing violence against Black minoritized women and girls. She speaks on race, gender and migration, including for UN Women, in the House of Commons, and at the Trade Unions Congress, and has written for VICE, OpenDemocracy and the Guardian.
