Coercive Geographies
Historicizing Mobility, Labor and Confinement

This ambitious volume delves into the fraught nexus of mobility and work, drawing timely and far-reaching conclusions.

Responding to the deteriorating situation of migrants today and the complex geographies they navigate, Coercive Geographies examines historical and contemporary forms of coercion and constraint exercised by a wide range of actors in diverse settings. It links the question of spatial confines to that of labor. Coercive Geographies represents an important attempt to bring together space, precarity, labor coercion and mobility in an analytical lens. Precarity emerges in particular geographical and historical contexts, which are decisive for how it is shaped. This volume analyzes coercive geographies as localized and spatialized intersections between labor regulations and migration policies, which become detrimental to existing mobility frameworks.
