As I€previously stated in this introduction, I€believe that it is naïve, if not risky, to keep considering the border a static standing wall. The border is not a neutral line but registers power relations between capital, institutions, and migrants. Unquestionably, borders’ ubiquity and permeability generate a certain anxiety within the nation-state but, more importantly borders too often traverse with violence the lives of migrants who get caught in their thresholds in a contemporary world more open to flows of capital than to human bodies’ circulation.
