Mobility in a European Post-Crisis Scenario: Law-Making Dynamics and Law-Enforcement Challenges

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialAcademicpeer-review


Security and mobility have become a seemingly inseparable concept in the recent European geopolitical landscape. While the historically deeply rooted social, economic and legal aspects of migration have been extensively studied, the current emphasis on emergency in mobility management, which has has been radically shaping the law-making and law-enforcement dynamics, has been rather underexplored. Taking stock of the challenges emerging in view of adjusting the law-making and enforcement set-up at the national and European levels to a context of emergency, this Special Issue pursues the ambitious goal of shedding light on the post-crisis controversial scenario of mobility in Europe, characterised by the political impasse over the reform of the overall European governance of migration. Based on a neoliberal conceptual framework, this multidisciplinary consideration of human mobility across European borders questions whether the crisis is really over or whether the sense of crisis is projected onto the future policy developments.
