Frontiers of Fear: Immigration and Security in Europe and the United States

Ariane
Chebel
D'Appollonia

Publisher: Cornell University Press Year: 2012

Chebel d'Appollonia questions the main assumptions that inform political agendas in the United States and throughout Europe, analyzing implementation and evaluating the effectiveness of policies in terms of their stated objectives. She argues that the new security-based immigration regime has proven ineffective in achieving its prescribed goals and even aggravated the problems it was supposed to solve: A security/insecurity cycle has been created that results in less security and less democracy. The excesses of securitization have harmed both immigration and counterterrorist policies and seriously damaged the delicate balance between security and respect for civil liberties.

Les Frontières du Racisme

Ariane
Chebel
D'Appollonia

Publisher: Presses de Sciences Po. Year: 2012

Acknowledged failure of multiculturalism in Germany and in Great Britain, hunting of the Roma in France and in Italy, criminalization of being Latino in the United States, inter-ethnic conflict and anti-white racism in Africa, anti-black racism in Europe, anti-Christian riots in Asia and the Middle East, growing anti-Semitism and global Islamophobia... What explains the persistence of racial prejudice in spite of unprecedented mobilization against racism? Are we witnessing the emergence of new ethno-racial boundaries? With a theoretical, historic, and comparative approach, this book assesses the nature and borders of contemporary racism. The author analyzes how the security obsession comes, in many countries, with a tightening circle of national identity, in order to legitimize the reinforcement of social control of minorities and toughening border enforcement.
