Abstract

This chapter looks at how migration flows are conditioned by architectural infrastructures. Both physical architecture such as roads, fences, walls and checkpoints, as well as non-material architectures. The infrastructures governing human mobility can be called global migration architecture. Global migration architecture determines who among us is allowed to travel, through what means, via what routes and at what cost. The chapter engages with how global migration architecture distributes risk differently and the consequences of this.

Keywords: Global migration architecture, risk distribution, mobility, migration, xenophobia
